FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — A 46 year-old man is facing a number of drug trafficking charges after police raided a home in Fort St. John late last month.

At around 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 24th the Fort St John RCMP’s Drug Section and Crime Reduction Unit executed a search warrant at a home in the 8900 block of 87th Avenue.

During the search, police seized 5 loaded firearms, approximately 800 suspected fentanyl tablets, 2 ounces of suspected fentanyl, 20 ounces of suspected powder and crack cocaine, 3 ounces of suspected crystal meth, and $38,000 cash.
