Ridge RCMP seize cocaine, ecstasy

Also find weapons and imitation firearms in residential neighbourhood.

  • Jan. 30, 2013 1:00 p.m.

Ridge Meadows RCMP seized imitation firearms, weapons and illegal drugs from a house in downtown Maple Ridge on Monday.

Police executed a search warrant at a residence in the 12200-block of 228th Street just after 6 p.m. and seized what they believe to be crack cocaine and ecstasy, as well as cash suspected of being proceeds of criminal activity.

“This home has been watched by the Street Enforcement Unit for some time now, and they were very successful in gaining grounds for the search warrant,” said RCMP Cpl. Alanna Dunlop.

Particularly alarming, she added, is the home amongst single-family dwellings with a neighbourhood park next to it.

A 41-year-old woman was arrested and later released. Investigators are recommending charges regarding the sale and distribution of illegal drugs.

“Both crack cocaine and ecstacy are serious street level drugs,” Dunlop said. “With ecstasy, there is no safe dosage when taking these pills. Even a single use can lead to serious illness or death. Taking these drugs away from our streets is a priority of the Street Enforcement Unit.”
