Drugs seized dur­ing street level traf­fick­ing op­er­a­tion

Asian Journal - - BRITISH COLUMBIA -

Chilli­wack: Two peo­ple were ar­rested -drugs and cash were seized- dur­ing an RCMP in­ves­ti­ga­tion into a street level drug traf­fick­ing op­er­a­tion.

On the morn­ing of Oc­to­ber 18, RCMP Crime Re­duc­tion Of­fi­cers (CRU) ob­served an al­leged drug trans­ac­tion in­volv­ing a 50-year-old man in the down­town area of the city. As of­fi­cers con­ducted their in­ves­ti­ga­tion a res­i­dence in the 9100-block of Charles Street was as­so­ci­ated this ac­tiv­ity.

The man was quickly taken into cus­tody out­side of the res­i­dence by the plain clothes unit. Ev­i­dence seized by of­fi­cers dur­ing the ar­rest linked the sus­pect to al­leged drug traf­fick­ing, led to the ar­rest of a se­cond in­di­vid­ual, and a search of the res­i­dence by po­lice later that af­ter­noon. At ap­prox­i­mately 4:00 p.m., Chilli­wack CRU sup­ported by the Chilli­wack Pro­lific Of­fender Sup­pres­sion Team (POST) ex­e­cuted a Con­trolled Drug and Sub­stance Act (CDSA) search war­rant at the res­i­dence. Drugs al­leged to be metham­phetamine, fen­tanyl, co­caine, heroin, along with cash, drug traf­fick­ing para­pher­na­lia, and a BB gun, were seized by po­lice. Corey Richard Emery, 31, of Chilli­wack is charged with 4 counts of pos­ses­sion of a con­trolled sub­stance for the pur­pose of traf­fick­ing. Mr. Emery re­mains in cus­tody pend­ing a court date in early Novem­ber. RCMP in­ves­ti­ga­tors will be sub­mit­ting all cir­cum­stances of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the ac­tiv­ity of the 50-year-old man to the BC Pros­e­cu­tion Ser­vice for their as­sess­ment of CDSA charges.

“Reports of il­le­gal drug trans­ac­tions made to the RCMP aided po­lice in the seizure of drugs be­fore they reached the streets of our com­mu­nity,” says Cor­po­ral Mike Rail spokesper­son for the UFVRD.
