File # 2021-138477

Surrey RCMP frontline officers located two guns and seized thousands of doses of suspected fentanyl after executing a search warrant in the Bear Creek area.

On September 11, 2021, Surrey RCMP received a call from a property representative after a quantity of illicit drugs were discovered in what was believed to be an unoccupied basement suite in the 14200-block of 87A Avenue. After an initial investigation, the scene was secured and officers obtained a search warrant for the premises.

Later the same day the officers executed the search warrant and located a number of items inside the residence including a 9mm Semi-Automatic Handgun; a fully automatic carbine rifle; ammunition; and 358 grams of suspected Fentanyl (approximately 3580 doses). The suspected fentanyl was packaged in a way that is consistent with street-level drug trafficking.

This year in BC more than 1000 people have lost their lives due to illicit drug toxicity, says Surrey RCMP Media Relations Officer, Cpl. Vanessa Munn. 358 grams of fentanyl may not sound like much, but when you consider that 2 milligrams is a potentially lethal dose, it really hits home how significant even small drug seizures really are. We encourage anyone who is suffering from addiction to seek help from their healthcare provider, and if you are using, never use alone.

This investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca
