On Friday February 14, members of the Prince George RCMP’s Street Crew Unit conducted a traffic stop on Foothills Boulevard as part of a drug trafficking investigation that began in 2019. The 34-year-old male driver was arrested and found to be in possession of approximately $10,000 in cash. The vehicle was seized as part of the investigation.
As a result of this arrest and the investigation leading up to it, the Street Crew Unit obtained and executed search warrants on a residence in the 1200 block of North Ospika Boulevard and on a residence on Orbin Place in Prince George. During these searches a large amount of methamphetamine and cocaine was seized, say police, along with drug trafficking paraphernalia and what is believed to be in excess of $50,000 in cash.
The suspect was held for investigation and later released pending further investigation and charge approval from the Federal Prosecution Service of Canada.
