Surrey RCMP is informing the public of three search warrants for residences that have led to seizures of drugs and firearms.

On March 12, 2020, Surrey RCMP Drugs Unit, with the assistance of the Surrey Gang Enforcement Team, Community Response Unit, the Lower Mainland Emergency Response Team, and Criminal Investigative Services, searched three residences in relation to ongoing investigations into drug trafficking.

Two associated residences were searched, one in the 16300-block of 28 Avenue in South Surrey, and the second in the 7000-block of 131 Street in Newton. Four suspects were identified and released pending further investigation.

During the search of these residences, investigators seized:

The illicit drug trade brings with it the possibility of violent acts within our community, says Staff Sergeant Glenn Atkins, Surrey RCMP. We acknowledge the invaluable role that information received from the public played in enabling these seizures, and encourage everyone to keep on reporting suspicious activity in their neighbourhood as we all have our responsibility when it comes to safety.
