Surrey RCMP say they have seized a large quantity of cannabis, cannabis plants, and cannabis products, along with guns and cash following two raids in Surrey and Langley in June.
The investigation, which began on June 22 according to BC RCMP, involved the Surrey Drug unit and the Surrey Gang Enforcement Team. A commercial property in the 2800-block of 196 Street in Langley and a residence in the 15700-block of 98 Avenue in Surrey were both raided.
Officers found 7,668 cannabis clone plants, 71 pounds of prepackaged cannabis, 1,150 preloaded cannabis vape pens, 1,250 “THC infused butter containers” (cannabis resin), five bricks of hashish, and two boxes of edible cannabis products and more than $30,000 in cash between the two locations.
Images released by the RCMP also show several firearms of different sizes and models, as well as ammunition.
“This was a highly sophisticated operation with multiple ledgers and databases of customers and clientele information,” writes the RCMP press release. “The property in Langley was an unlicensed commercial business specializing in the sale of cannabis plant seedlings, also known as clones.”
Two men and one woman were arrested and later released pending further investigation. Police also located two young children, a newborn baby and a two-year-old at the Surrey residence. The Ministry of Children and Family Development has been engaged to ensure the safety of both children.
