Thursday evening the detachment’s Street Crew Unit arrested two suspects believed to be trafficking in controlled substances.
The first suspect, a 30-year-old Prince George man, was found in possession of fentanyl and cash, while the second man, a 28-year-old Prince George resident, was found in possession of a pistol that turned out to be a BB gun.
The investigation led officers to a residence on the 3000-block of Third Avenue. A search warrant was obtained which led to the seizure of a rifle and various types of ammunition, as well as drug trafficking paraphernalia.
Both suspects were later released pending further investigation and charge assessment from the Prosecution Service of Canada.
A third man, a 34-year-old Prince George resident, was located at a local hotel and found to be breaching the conditions of his probation. He has been held in custody overnight and will appear in court later today.
