Surrey RCMP says three men were arrested after officers raided a home last week and found drugs, cash and weapons inside.
Police executed a search warrant on March 8 at a residence in the 1400-block of 160th Street, which sits blocks away from multiple public schools, including Earl Marriott Secondary.
The warrant was executed after police received information that “many youths” were at the home to purchase drugs.
Upon entering the home, officers found and seized roughly 600 doses of marijuana, 700 doses of psilocybin mushrooms, 500 doses of LSD, and 1,800 doses of cannabis extract.
More than $2,500 in cash was also seized, along with six pellet guns and five knives.
Three people were arrested during the search but have since been released pending future court dates. No charges have been laid yet and the names of those arrested have not been released.
Police suggest the operation’s proximity to local schools was no accident.
“In this case we have taken down an operation which targeted youth,” Sgt. Winston Shorey with the Surrey RCMP Community Response Unit said in a release.
“These arrests and seizures are part of a wider, long-term effort to reduce the prevalence of drug trafficking in our communities.”
Police are asking anyone with information on the operation to contact them, or anonymously through Crime Stoppers.
