Kitimat RCMP seize suspected drugs and large amount of cash

Search warrant obtained after officers spot suspicious materials during another investigation

Kitimat RCMP say they’ve seized a large quantity of suspected cocaine, Canadian currency, firearms, illegal unstamped cigarettes, a large quantity of illegal cannabis, and miscellaneous other drug trafficking items.

The seizure took place Dec. 3 after police spotted a large amount of Canadian currency, suspected cocaine and drug trafficking paraphernalia while at a local residence during an unrelated investigation.

Officers then obtained a search warrant, said acting Kitimat RCMP detachment commander Sgt. Rob Gardner.

“It was a great job by the officers to make this discovery during a different investigation, and get these items off the streets of our town,” he said.

No arrests have yet been made, but the investigation is ongoing, Gardner added.
