Hard work and a keen eye for suspicious activity led a Surrey RCMP Frontline officer to make a significant seizure of drugs and cash during a vehicle check stop in Guildford.
On June 2, 2020, a Frontline officer was on proactive patrol in the Guildford area and observed a suspicious activity involving two people, associated to a vehicle idling in the parking lot of a gas station, in the area of 168 Street and 96 Avenue.
Further investigation by the officer, led to the discovery of items consistent with drug trafficking and culminated in the arrest of a man and woman.
As the investigation progressed, officers located and seized a substantial amount of drugs including suspected cocaine, heroin, and heroin/fentanyl. Officers also located and seized approximately $20,000 in cash, bear mace, as well as a baton, and knife.
The man and woman were released from police custody as the investigation is continuing -charges have not been laid at this time.
This seizure is a great example of proactive policing by our Frontline officers, says Corporal Joanie Sidhu.
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.
