Police bust suspected drug dealer in Aldergrove

Police executed a search warrant after RCMP had initiated an investigation into drug trafficking activities of an Aldergrove resident

On Wednesday, Jan. 13, police executed a search warrant at an Aldergrove residence after Langley RCMP had initiated an investigation into the drug trafficking activities of an Aldergrove resident.

“This investigation took on a higher priority due to the fact the residence was in close proximity to a school,” said RCMP spokesperson, Corporal Holly Largy.

“With the assistance of Lower Mainland District ERT, Langley Street Enforcement Unit and officers from General Duty, the warrant was executed.”

Items seized include over 30 grams of a substance believed to be crack cocaine, 20 grams of suspected powder cocaine, nearly 40 grams of potential methamphetamine, over 2.5 pounds of suspected marihuana and a variety of drug trafficking paraphernalia.

In addition to the drugs, police also seized a starter pistol and over $2,000 in cash.

Charges will be recommended for the 20 year old resident that will include trafficking a controlled substance, and possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.
