 During the execution of Controlled Drugs and Substances Act search warrants last week in Prince George, Mounties dismantled two drug operations and seized a variety of suspected illegal drugs, cash and trucks.

On Thursday December 3, 2020 the Prince George RCMP’s Street Crew Unit, with the assistance of support units including the RCMP’s Emergency Response Team, Prince George Police Dog Services and Air Services, executed four Controlled Drugs and Substances Act search warrants in the Prince George area.

Warrants were executed at residences and locations in the 200-block of Harper Street, the 7000-block of Kingsley Crescent, on Iona Street near Old Summit Lake Road and on Marlin Drive in Salmon Valley. Seven people were arrested, many of whom have links to organized crime.

At one site police seized suspected cocaine packaged for resale, suspected steroids and prescription pills including Adderol, Cialis and Xaanax.

At another property, steel shipping containers had been placed in an underground bunker and tunneled into a hillside. Inside, police located an active psilocybin production grow operation; a cannabis oil extraction lab with commercial equipment and processing station; and a commercial grade packaging area for the illicit sale of cannabis, shatter and edibles. Also located were Advent Calendars produced for distribution of illicit cannabis products.

A third location was laid out like a pharmacy offering products such as suspected cocaine, prescription medications and illicit cannabis products. In addition to a processing station for the cutting and re-packaging of cocaine for later sale.

In total, approximately 1.5 kilograms of cocaine, an abundance of prescription pills, hundreds of doses of steroids and thousands of doses of GHB were seized along with $35,600 in cash, a Dodge Ram 1500 and a 2020 GMC Canyon Denali. The cannabis extraction lab and the production and sale of psilocybin are estimated to generate hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue annually.

These enforcement actions will be a significant disruption to the drug trafficking trade and organized crime in Prince George, states Cst. Jennifer Cooper.

The investigation is ongoing, no charges have been laid.
