The wheels on the bus transport the goods, transport the goods . . .
Peace Region Traffic Services pulled over a vehicle for speeding on January 25, and later charged a male and 2 females with drug trafficking charges.
The search of the vehicle lead to the seizure of 705 grams of marijuana, 6 ounces of cocaine, over $13,000 in cash, a knife, a crowbar and a can of bear spray.
During the search, RCMP officers located a shipping receipt in the vehicle for a package sent through the Greyhound Bus Depot addressed to a recipient in Chilliwack. The package was sent by one of the accused who was in police custody. The traffic member suspected there may have been more contraband sent via Greyhound and requested the package be intercepted by Chilliwack RCMP and held pending a search warrant.
The wheels of justice moved a lot faster when the Chilliwack RCMP located the package, which was identified as a suitcase, at the bus station. A search warrant was granted and police located $13,000 in cash concealed in a container inside the suitcase.
RCMP are continuing their investigation into this matter.
