View Untitled in a larger map

The Fort St. John RCMP have seized a number of firearms, cash and cocaine.

In the early morning hours of August 29th the Regional General Investigation Section worked in partnership with the Fort St. John Serious Crime Section and the Drug Unit executed a search warrant at a residence located on 96th avenue.

Police seized a number of firearms on the property, which included both handguns and long barreled firearms. Police also located a large amount of cash and a significant quantity of what Police believe to be Cocaine.

Charges have been recommended against an occupant of the residence for Possession of a Controlled Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking and Possession of a Restricted Weapon. The 43 year old Fort St. John male has been released from custody to appear in Fort St. John Provincial Court this October.

The Fort St. John Drug Unit and Serious Crime Section are still working to identify, arrest and charge the persons who are responsible for the trafficking of cociane in Fort St. John.

At this time the RCMP don’t believe this bust is assiociated with a drug related shooting on August 24th, this is Constable Passarell. [asset|aid=1815|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=bcd9419334fae82f66298b0b0e5793a6-Passarell – 1_1_Pub.mp3]

The RCMP say they are also sending a strong message that with the recent shooting of a 22 year old male, the RCMP are going to assert their presence into the daily lives of drug traffikers in order to remove guns and drugs from this community.

The RCMP at this time, have not recovered the weapon that was used in the shooting offense and have not arrested the persons responsible.
