Cash, ammunition and thousands of potentially lethal doses of fentanyl were seized from three Surrey properties earlier this month by Surrey Mounties.
On Oct. 13, Surrey RCMP’s Drug Unit with the assistance of the Surrey Gang Enforcement Team executed three search warrants. The warrants were for locations identified in the spring of 2021 as being part of a drug trafficking network with ties to the Lower Mainland gang conflict. The locations included residences in the 12600 block of 97 Avenue, 11700 block of 96A Avenue, and 13400 block of Central Avenue.
During the execution of the warrants, two men were arrested and later released pending charge approval.
Drugs and other items seized in the searches included:
- 2.5 kilograms of bulk fentanyl;
- ½ kilograms of cocaine;
- 250 grams of bulk benzodiazepines;
- Pre-made dealer bags of assorted street drugs;
- Several kilograms of various buffing agents and paraphernalia for mixing, cutting and packaging drugs;
- Cell phones;
- Approximately $14,000 cash;
- A Rolex watch, with an estimated value of $48,000; and
“This drug seizure is significant as not only has it disrupted a drug trafficking network with ties to the Lower Mainland Gang Conflict, there are now 25,000 potentially fatal doses of fentanyl off our streets,” says Surrey RCMP Drug Unit’s Staff Sgt. Glenn Leeson.
