Ridge Meadows RCMP found a raft of drugs ready for sale after checking a parked and occupied vehicle on Brown Avenue and 227th Street, Tuesday night.

Police later found 55 individual baggies of suspected drugs, including what’s suspected to be fentanyl, as well as heroin, crack cocaine, cocaine and cash.

A 20-year-old Maple Ridge man was arrested and charges are being pursued, police said on Facebook.

“Investigating and prosecuting drug trafficking in our community continues to be a priority,” Ridge Meadows RCMP said.

Police said Thursday they are concerned about deadly fentanyl that’s being mixed with other drugs and have issued a warning together with Fraser Health. A dozen people have died in Metro Vancouver in the past month from overdoses.
