Downtown Safety Unit seizes large amount of cash, drugs

While on patrol Friday, the Downtown Safety Unit noticed some suspicious activity that resulted in the seizure of more $30,000 in illicit drugs and cash.

Members of the unit were on routine patrol on the 1500 block of Victoria Street when they observed a vehicle known to them in a parking lot of a nearby business.

While interacting with the suspects, police saw what appeared to be a significant quantity of crystal meth in their possession.

Police arrested one man in connection with the suspected drugs; he was later released from police custody pending the outcome of the investigation and charge approval from Crown Counsel.

“In total, Downtown Safety Unit members seized more than a kilogram of what appears to be crystal meth, cocaine and fentanyl, as well as over $30,000 in cash. The quantities of the drugs are consistent with what police see in drug trafficking,” said Cpl. Jennifer Cooper, Media Relations Officer for the Prince George RCMP.
