Ridge Meadows RCMP arrested a 39-year-old Vancouver man as part of a six-month investigation into a dial-a-dope operation.

The suspect made several drug transactions before he was arrested Wednesday, when a large quantity of what police believe to be heroin and crack cocaine were seized from his vehicle.

“This has been a long, extensive investigation involving a ‘dial-a-dope’ operation that was in business between Vancouver and our communities,” Cpl. Alanna Dunlop said.

The arrest and seizure of the illegal drugs resulted in a search warrant being granted for a Vancouver residence where the suspect resides. The search of that home occurred early Thursday and resulted in more items pertaining to the illegal distribution of drugs being seized.

A total of 345 individual packages of heroin and crack cocaine were seized along with a substantial amount of cash.

“This case demonstrates how drug trafficking and distribution crosses jurisdictions and result in very complex investigations,” Dunlop added.
