“There are no further details available regarding the investigations associated to the drug files as they are still ongoing at this time,” said Klaussner in an email to The News.

Klaussner did not release information on what drugs were seized, what quantities of drugs were seized, how many investigations took place, how many people or residences in Pitt Meadows were involved, where in Pitt Meadows did the investigations take place, if any arrests were made or how many people were arrested, or how many officers were involved.

Klaussner described the social media post as a snapshot, because she said, RCMP feel the community would be interested to know the work that is occurring.

“If there is an opportunity to share information at a later date, pending lab results and charge approval, then we will do so at that time,” said Klaussner.
