File # 2017-21892

Two people are facing charges as a result of the investigation and subsequent search warrant at an illegal storefront business in our community.

On Friday August 4th, 2017, the Prince George RCMP’s Downtown Safety Unit, with assistance from the Detachment’s General Duty Section, executed a Controlled Drugs and Substances Act search warrant at Wee Medical located on the 1400 block of 3rd Avenue in Prince George. Two males age 34 and 32 were arrested inside the business.

As a result of the search, investigators seized a considerable quantity of marihuana, cannabis infused food, cash, packaging material and other evidence to support charges under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. Both accused were released on Promises to Appear for court on October 11th, 2017.
