Cops seize drugs, cash

The Prince George RCMP Downtown Safety Unit noticed some suspicious activity that resulted in the seizure of more than $30,000 in illicit drugs and cash.

On Friday, Sept. 24, police were on routine patrol on the 1500 block of Victoria Street when they observed a vehicle known to them in a parking lot of a nearby business.

“While interacting with the suspects, Downtown Safety Unit members observed what appeared to be a significant quantity of crystal meth in their possession,” Cpl. Jennifer Cooper said.

Police arrested one man in connection with the suspected drugs who was later released from police custody pending the outcome of the investigation and charge approval from Crown Counsel.

“In total, Downtown Safety Unit members seized more than a kilogram of what appears to be crystal meth, cocaine and fentanyl, as well as over $30,000 in cash. The quantities of the drugs are consistent with what police see in drug trafficking,” said Cooper.
