File # 2020-160056
Over 1000 doses of illicit drugs and cash has been seized by the Surrey RCMP Community Response Unit (CRU) following a vehicle stop in Newton.
On October 14, 2020 shortly before 10:00 p.m., Surrey RCMP CRU officers stopped a suspicious vehicle near 74 Avenue and 128 Street. While engaged in the traffic stop, officers made observations consistent with drug possession. The driver and passenger were subsequently arrested.
During further investigation of the vehicle, officers located and seized a significant amount of suspected illicit drugs including: the equivilant of 56 doses of crystal methamphetamine, 300 doses of heroin, and 1120 doses of fentanyl, as well as approximately $2,000 in cash. (See attached photo.)
The driver and passenger were released pending further investigation. No charges have been laid at this time.
This seizure is another great example of proactive policing by our officers, says Sergeant Roger Green of the Surrey RCMP Community Response Unit.
They saw something that looked out of place, they took the time to find out what was going on, and ended up making a significant seizure of illicit drugs and cash from a single vehicle stop.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca.
