Creston RCMP seize over one kilogram of suspected opioids

On March 5, 2024 Creston RCMP frontline officers and the Southeast District Containment Team executed a search warrant at the 3700 block of Highway 3 in Erickson, BC. Police were targeting a drug operation that had moved since police had stepped up enforcement action over the past few months on other locations. This was the fifth search warrant targeting drug operations in the Creston Valley since December 2023.

Officers arrested the occupant of the residence without incident and conducted a search of the residence. The search yielded significant amounts of illicit drugs, including over 1 kilogram of suspected opioids and cocaine, along with evidence related to drug trafficking. The suspect is facing potential charges once all investigative reporting and lab results have been reviewed by the prosecution service.

We know where these drugs are coming from, and we know the players in this situation, says S/Sgt. Brandon Buliziuk, Creston RCMP Detachment Commander. This is the fifth time we have targeted this trafficking ring in the past few months, and we will continue to pursue their network. My officers will relentlessly seek out those trafficking illicit substances to protect the vulnerable residents of this Valley from the harms that come from illicit opioid use. I would like to personally thank the citizens of the Creston Valley for their continued support as we all work together in efforts of disrupting this activity.

Anyone with information of suspected illicit substance trafficking is asked to reach out to the local Detachment.
