Four men and one woman face federal charges after Mounties executed a search warrant in 45000-block of Yale Road on Jan. 11

Four men and one woman face federal charges after Chilliwack Mounties busted a dial-a-dope ring downtown last week.

After an eight-month investigation led police to a property in the 45000-block of Yale Road, two search warrants were executed on Jan. 11 that turned up cocaine, two kilograms of marijuana, $30,000 in cash, four motor vehicles and further evidence linking the suspects to drug-trafficking offences, according to police.

The investigation began in May 2016 after police received reports of the sale of drugs through a dial-a-dope ring.

RCMP will submit a report to Federal Crown Counsel for  assessment of Controlled Drug and Substance Act charges of trafficking in a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.

“In ending the operation of a sophisticated dial-a-dope ring the RCMP in Chilliwack have taken another step in reducing organized crime and removing illegal drugs from our community,” said Chilliwack RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Mike Rail in a press release.
