The Prince George RCMP’s Street Crew seized a large amount of suspected illicit drugs after a recent investigation into drug trafficking in Prince George.

On August 25, 2021, the Prince George RCMP’s Street Crew Unit executed a Controlled Drugs and Substances Act warrant on a residence on the 1300 block of Eaglet Crescent.

Inside the home, police located a large quantity of suspected illicit drugs, including what appears to be cocaine, fentanyl and methamphetamine. Police also seized drug paraphernalia and a firearm.

Investigators arrested two males from inside the residence. One male was released pending laboratory results and subsequent charge approval from the Public Prosecutions Service of Canada. Police held the second male for a court as he was in breach of his court ordered conditions. Investigators are familiar with both of the men arrested.

We see that drug trafficking is fueling the property crime and violence and, most notably, an increase in firearm offences. The Street Crew unit continues to target those groups responsible for causing and perpetuating these issues, and remains committed to removing illegal firearms from our streets, states Sgt. Chad Chamberlain, head of the Street Crew Unit.

This investigation is ongoing.

If you have any information about this or any other criminal offence, please contact the Prince George RCMP at (250)561-3300 or anonymously contact Crime Stoppers at 1(800)222-8477 or online at www.northernbccrimestoppers.ca (English only). You do not have to reveal your identity to Crime Stoppers. If you provide information that leads to an arrest or recovery of stolen property, you could be eligible for a cash reward.
