Illicit drug trafficking contributes to a wide variety of social issues within our community ranging from mental health calls, property thefts, violence and toxic drug poisoning, said Staff Sergeant Scott Watson. The proactive work by our plainclothes units like this contributes to a greater overall public safety for our entire community. Great work.

A total of 3 people were arrested by police in connection to the investigation. Several drug and firearm offences are being pursued by police.

The Fort St John RCMP Continue to investigate and are asking anyone who may have additional information in this matter to contact the Fort St John detachment at 250-787-8100.
