Welcome to Bella Coola sign

 

On Monday, August 7th, 2023, frontline officers from the Bella Coola RCMP executed a search warrant at a residence in the 8000 block of Highway 20 in Bella Coola.

The search warrant was obtained under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act as part of an investigation into suspected drug trafficking in the community. During the search, police located and seized suspected methamphetamine, cannabis and gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB) along with drug trafficking paraphernalia and cash. Police also recovered an ATV that was stolen out of Williams Lake in late 2022.

4 persons found in the residence were detained and later released pending further investigation.

"Illicit drugs found in large urban centers are making their way to small towns like Bella Coola, these drugs are detrimental to a small community." said Sergeant Trevor Romanchych, Bella Coola RCMP Detachment Commander. "I ask the public to help us reduce the effect that drugs, drug trafficking have on our community by reporting suspicious activity to the police."

Anyone wishing to report suspicious activity, or any other criminal offence is encouraged to contact the Bella Coola RCMP at (250)799-5363 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1(800)222-TIPS (8477).
