File # 2022-4048

An ongoing drug trafficking investigation has culminated in a second search warrant and further seizures of drugs and cash, as well as arrests.

In October 2022, the Smithers RCMP began an investigation, into drug trafficking within the community. The investigation led to the execution of a search warrant in which drugs and cash were seized on December 29, 2022. Police have since gathered additional evidence to support a second search warrant which was executed on January 12, 2023 at the same residence located on the 3700 block of Broadway Avenue. During the search, police seized illicit drugs suspected to be cocaine, methamphetamine and fentanyl, as well as cash and drug paraphernalia.

Two people were arrested and released pending further investigation.
