A 30-year-old Maple Ridge man was arrested Tuesday after police seized crack cocaine, heroin, and crystal methamphetamine from a hotel along Lougheed Highway.

A plainclothes policing team gained grounds to search a room at a hotel in the 2160- block of the Lougheed Highway on Tuesday, executing the warrant at approximately 3:30 p.m.

Officers seized a significant amount of crack cocaine, heroin, and crystal methamphetamine from both the suspect and the hotel unit, along with a large amount of cash they feel is proceeds from the sale and distribution of illegal drugs.

Police are recommending charges of possession of controlled substances for the purpose of trafficking.

The man was released from custody and is to appear in court in February.
