SURREY (NEWS 1130)  — After a month-long investigation, RCMP seized various drugs and found upwards of $25,000 in cash at a home in Surrey.

Mounties say an investigation started at the beginning of March when they saw suspicious activity “consistent with drug trafficking” near 124 Street and 114 Avenue.

This eventually led to a search warrant, which RCMP carried out on April 22.

According to the release, officers seized “plastic packages containing suspected fentanyl, hard-pressed pills, and methamphetamine,” and about $25,541 in cash from the home.

A man and woman were detained at the house, but later released pending further investigation.

There haven’t been any charges laid yet.

“The illicit drug trade is a significant driver of crime in our community,” says Staff Sergeant Mike Deneumoustier. “We will continue to pro-actively investigate illegal drug activity in our community to reduce crime and keep Surrey safe.”
