Surrey RCMP is informing the public of ongoing enforcement action targeting drug trafficking in the City Centre area.
On August 30, 2022, Surrey RCMP Drug Unit executed a search warrant at a convenience store located in the 10200-block of City Parkway. The search warrant was part of an ongoing investigation focused on criminal activity in the area due to numerous complaints of drug trafficking and violent incidents linked to the illicit drug trade in the area surrounding the store. Investigation lead the police to believe that the business was being used to facilitate drug trafficking in the area.
A search warrant was executed at the business, where police seized:
203 grams of bulk and street level pre-packaged fentanyl
38 grams of methamphetamine
17 grams of cocaine
300 hydromorphone pills
278 grams of Marijuana and approximately $150,000 cash
The bulk fentanyl alone represents over 2,000 potentially fatal doses taken off our streets, says Surrey RCMP Media Relations officer, Cst Sarbjit K. Sangha. We will be keeping a close eye on this location, which has been a hot spot for drug dealing and violence.
