File # 2020-6872

Not everyone had a happy Valentine’s day as Burnaby RCMP’s Drug section arrested two people on alleged drug offences.

Just after 9:30 p.m., on February 14, 2020, Burnaby RCMP’s Drug section were conducting proactive enforcement when they observed a vehicle they believed was involved in drug trafficking.

As a result of this investigation, two women were arrested, a vehicle was impounded and numerous drugs and cash were located in several hidden compartments in objects located inside the vehicle. Included in the seizure were fentanyl, cocaine, methamphetamine, counterfeit pills of unknown substances and approximately $1500 in cash.

In addition to the seizure above, both suspects will now have to do without a water bottle, lint roller and hairbrush where many of the drugs were located.
