Anyone with information is asked to contact the police.

Police seized a large quantity of drugs, cash and stolen property in the 200 block of Fort Street in Hope on Sept. 14, according to a press release.

Hope RCMP successfully applied for a search warrant and seized marijuana, cocaine, heroine and methamphetamine along with drug paraphernalia at the scene and also a stolen laptop taken from a visitor from England, plus “a substantial amount of cash,” said the release.

“Police took extra caution with the seized drugs due to recent police investigations involving fentanyl,” said the release. “A local Hope resident was taken into custody and released on a Promise to Appear to attend court at a later date.”

Police said they are recommending several charges including trafficking in, and posessing, a controlled substance and possession of stolen property.

They added that the investigation continues and anyone with information should call the Hope RCMP at 604-869-7750 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
