Chilliwack:  Suspected marihuana and cannabis products were seized during the search of an alleged marihuana dispensary by RCMP.

The investigation was initiated on February 21, 2018 when a patrolling Chilliwack RCMP Quick Response Team (QRT) officer observed suspicious behaviour of individuals outside of a business in the 46000-block of Yale Road.   Evidence gathered by the officer was reported to the Chilliwack Crime Reduction Unit (CRU).

Later that evening CRU officers supported by the Prolific Offender Suppression Team (POST) and QRT executed a Controlled Drug and Substance Act (CDSA) search warrant at the address.

A large quantity of suspected marihuana, cannabis edibles, oils, pills, cash, and business records were seized by officers during the execution of the warrant.  No arrests were made by police.

RCMP investigators will be submitting all circumstances of the investigation in a report to Crown Counsel for their assessment of CDSA charges.

“An alert officer, timely investigation by CRU, and the coordinated effort of police resources were essential to preventing drugs from reaching the streets of our community,” says Corporal Mike Rail spokesperson for the UFVRD.
