This past May, Fort St. John RCMP helped the CFSEU-BC’s investigators take three into custody, and recover 1.8kg of powdered cocaine, 1.6kg of crack cocaine and just under $138,000 in cash after an alleged drug runner based in the Fraser Valley was intercepted.

“This was a complex, multi-jurisdictional investigation affecting several areas throughout B.C. and in Alberta,” said the CFSEU-BC spokesperson, Constable Jordan McLellan.

“Our investigations span the province and the arrests and seizures we have had in Northern B.C. are further examples that the CFSEU-BC will turn its attention anywhere criminal activity is taking place.”

This investigated started with a group based in Chilliwack, back in August 2014. This March, it was announced that the investigation resulted in the seizure of cash, weapons, and over $5 million dollars worth of illegal and potentially lethal drugs, including Fentanyl. Several arrests were made as well.

The whereabouts of Morrissey and Thiessen are currently unknown.
