Langley RCMP say they have seized $618,000 worth of illicit drugs, including cannabis and cannabis gummies, cash, weapons, cocaine, fentanyl, crystal meth, and mushrooms from a suburban neighbourhood.

The Langley RCMP’s Special Response Team executed a search warrant at a cannabis manufacturing lab on July 19 in a neighbourhood in the city located in Vancouver’s Lower Mainland.

In addition to drugs and weapons, police seized cash, $40,000 in jewellery, and a vehicle.

The BC city is not unfamiliar with the illicit cannabis market. In 2020, Federal Serious & Organized Crime investigators seized a large quantity of cannabis plants and packaged cannabis after searches were conducted on a Langley property.

The search, in coordination with Langley RCMP, led to the seizure of 3,230 plants beyond the licensed amount, and approximately 136 kg (300 lbs) of packaged cannabis prepared for distribution from a rural property. RCMP say the property was using medical cannabis personal or designated production licences for the purpose of distribution.

In 2021, RCMP raided a property in Langley that was an unlicensed commercial business specializing in the sale of cannabis plantlets.
