Drug trafficking investigations keep RCMP street crew busy


As part of an ongoing investigation, the Prince George RCMP’s Street Crew Unit conducted a traffic stop of a vehicle on Thursday March 8 and subsequently arrested two men.

The 41-year-old and 34-year-old male occupants of the vehicle were arrested for possession for the purpose of trafficking in a controlled substance.  A search of the vehicle found a significant amount of heroin and methamphetamine, according to police.

Investigators obtained and executed a search warrant on a residence on the 1300 block of Irwin Street.  Cocaine, methamphetamine, cash and drug trafficking paraphernalia were located and seized.  Although charges have not yet been laid, this investigation is continuing.

This above investigation follows two other drug trafficking investigations that were conducted by the Street Crew Unit last month.

On Friday February 16, members of the Street Crew Unit with assistance from the detachment’s General Duty Section, executed search warrants at two separate residences on the 2200 block of Spruce Street.  A quantity of methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin was seized along with two firearms.  Three men, ages 44, 45, and 51, and a woman, age 42, were arrested.  The investigation is continuing.

During the early morning hours of Saturday February 17, members of the Street Crew Unit with assistance from the detachment’s General Duty Section, executed a search warrant at a residence on the 2600 block of Range Road.  During the search, a quantity of fentanyl, cocaine and marijuana was seized along with drug trafficking paraphernalia.  In addition, a loaded rifle, ammunition, cell phones, cash and several stolen items were located and seized.  A 24-year-old man and a 44-year-old man were arrested at the scene.  The investigation is continuing.
