On May 14, Creston RCMP conducted a high-risk search warrant for the third time at a known residence on the 1800 block of Ash Street in Creston, BC.

The search warrant was executed with the assistance of the Southeast District Containment Team, the RCMP Police Dog Service, and the South East District Emergency Response Team. These specialized units helped mitigate risks to public and police safety.

Officers arrested two people from inside the residence, who were later released pending further investigation. Evidence of alleged offences will be forwarded to the British Columbia Prosecution Service for consideration of appropriate charges at their discretion.

Police located over 500 grams of illicit drugs, including heroin, methamphetamine, and fentanyl. Officers also located a firearm, cash and packing consistent with drug trafficking.

Our officers did amazing work on preventing these drugs from hitting our streets, says S/Sgt. Brandon Buliziuk, Creston Detachment Commander. We are working hard at targeting these traffickers and are making significant gains in dismantling the local drug trade. To those who continue to partake in these activities locally – let me assure you, we will not relent and will continue to focus on disrupting your criminal activities in the best interests of the good people of the Creston Valley.

Anyone with information of suspected illicit substance trafficking or any crime is asked to reach out to the local Detachment by calling 250-428-9313 or anonymously contact Crime Stoppers at 1(800)222-8477.
