WHALLEY â€” Surrey Mounties have shut down what they say was a crack shack in Whalley.
This was in the 12900-block of 108th Avenue.
â€œThe residence was believed to be supplying street level drugs to people attending this location,â€ Cpl. Scotty Schumann said.
Ten people were arrested during a search at the house late last month and police seized more than 50 grams of crack cocaine, equal to about 500 doses. They also seized 40 grams of heroin â€” roughly 400 doses â€” as well as a loaded gun.
â€œAlso located was a small amount of cannabis, hashish and methadone,â€ Schumann said. â€œIn addition to over $1,700 in cash, materials and supplies used in the packaging and distribution of drugs were also seized.â€
Police have recommended to the Crown that possession for the purpose of trafficking and weapons charges be laid against a man, 57, and woman, 41, whose names have not been released.
â€œThis residence was an ongoing concern and was causing disruption to the surrounding community,â€ Schumann said.
â€œThe seizure of the gun from this residence demonstrates the extent people in the drug trade will go to, to protect their inventory.â€
