Two youths arrested in bust of drug cache site

Darpan News Desk Surrey RCMP, 04 Mar, 2021
  • Two youths arrested in bust of drug cache site

The Surrey RCMP Drug Unit has arrested two youths after busting a cache site linked to a suspected dial-a-dope operation in Whalley.

This investigation began in early February,2021 in relation to suspected drug trafficking activity at an underground parkade in the 10700-block of University Drive. Further investigation led drug investigators to a unit inside the condominium tower related to the parkade.

On February 25, 2021, a search warrant was executed at the condominium, leading to the discovery of a multi-ounce drug cache, and packaging site. Two 16-year-old males were arrested; one is alleged to have been in possession of a loaded handgun at the time of his arrest.

During the investigation, police located and seized bulk and pre-packaged quantities of suspected powder cocaine, crack cocaine, methamphetamine, fentanyl, and MDMA. In addition to the loaded handgun, a loaded pistol grip shot gun was seized along with $11,000 in cash.

It is concerning to see youth involved in drug trafficking, says Staff Sergeant Glenn Leeson, Surrey RCMP Drug Unit. Not only are they putting community members at risk by trafficking potentially lethal drugs, but they are also putting themselves in danger.

Neither of the youth suspects have any known connections to the Lower Mainland gang conflict. Both youths have been released from police custody; charges have not yet been laid. A report to BC Prosecution Service is anticipated pending further investigation.
