RCMP in Ashcroft has secured a rental vehicle, which is now being carefully examined by investigators who specialize in the strategic dismantling of clandestine drug laboratories, after front line officers found hazardous materials inside.

On January 19, 2021 Ashcroft RCMP was notified of a rental vehicle impounded, after being left abandoned outside a local motel. As a result of continued investigation into the circumstances surrounding the towed rental vehicle, RCMP carried out a further search of that vehicle. Upon closer examination police discovered items believed consistent with the production of illicit drugs.

The RCMP Federal Clandestine Laboratory Enforcement and Response (CLEAR) Team, based out of BC RCMP Headquarters in Surrey BC has deployed to assist Ashcroft RCMP.

The Federal RCMP Clandestine Laboratory Enforcement and Response (CLEAR) team is a specialized police unit responsible for dismantling clandestine drug laboratories and processing the hazardous materials often found within.

The investigation, which is in its early stages, is being led by the Ashcroft RCMP and continues at this time. RCMP ask the public to refrain from attending the area for safety reasons, states Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey, spokesman for the BC RCMP in the Southeast District.

Anyone with any additional information is asked to contact the Ashcroft RCMP at 250-453-2216.
