Drug bust in Hope

RCMP seized a variety of illegal drugs, cash and police scanner

Two people known to police were arrested during a recent drug bust in Hope.

On Jan. 22 at about 10:30 a.m., members of the Hope RCMP general investigation section along with general duty officers and members of the Chilliwack drug section executed a search warrant at a home on Douglas Street near Third Avenue.

One man and one woman were arrested inside the home, but were later released from custody.

Police seized an undisclosed amount of drugs believed to be cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamine and prescription pills, as well as cash and a police scanner.

“Hope RCMP continues to work to remove illegal drugs from our city to ensure Hope remains a safe community for everyone,” said Staff Sgt. Bruce Anderson.
