Through the months of September and October, Prince George RCMP’s Street Crew Unit has continued to put the pressure on those trafficking illicit drugs in the city, recently executing several Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA) search warrants.
Between October 9 and October 11, 2023, with the assistance of the North District Emergency Response team and Prince George Police Dog Services, investigators executed a pair of CDSA search warrants at two locations within Prince George. Approximately 1.5 kilograms of suspected methamphetamine, suspected cocaine and suspected fentanyl; 2000 hydromorphone pills and 1000 OxyContin pills; ammunition, and body armour were seized during the execution of these two warrants.

Our Street Crew Unit then traveled to Langley, B.C. to execute a CDSA search warrant at a residence there they identified as connected with the illicit drug trade in Prince George. With the assistance of police officers from the Lower Mainland Emergency Response Team and Langley RCMP, the search warrant was executed and an estimated $100,000 in luxury handbags, $50,000 in stolen motorcycles, a small quantity of suspected fentanyl, and drug trafficking paraphernalia was seized, states Cpl. Jennifer Cooper Media Relations Officer for the Prince George RCMP.
