The searches stemmed from reports received by police of suspicious activity observed outside of a residence in the 46000-block of King Avenue.
On March 6, officers of the Chilliwack Crime Reduction Unit (CRU) supported by the Chilliwack Priority Offender Suppression Team (POST) and Quick Response Team (QRT) executed a Controlled Drug and Substance Act (CDSA) search warrant of the residence.
Property linked to thefts from businesses in Chilliwack, drugs believed to be cocaine, methamphetamine, and heroin, alleged evidence associated to drug trafficking, and firearms were seized by police during the search.
Three individuals taken into custody were later released by RCMP.
Police will be submitting all circumstances of the investigation in a report to the BC Prosecution Service for their assessment of Controlled Drug and Substance Act and Criminal Code charges.
“RCMP remain proactive in our effort to prevent illegal drugs from reaching the streets of our community,” says Corporal Mike Rail spokesperson for the UFVRD.
RCMP remind everyone who witnesses anything they believe to be suspicious in nature to contact the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or, should you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
