A search of the house netted what Peppler described as “a substantial amount…of cash,” and suspected heroin, cocaine, fentanyl, ketamine and methamphetamine. Police also seized a crossbow with arrows, a large curved knife and imitation firearms.

Friday’s raid was part of an on-going investigation. Mounties will recommend charges to the crown pending a full review of the seized evidence. The raid was not related to the detachment’s recent seizure of suspected drugs and cash at the Grand Forks Inn, Peppler added.

Mounties are asking anyone with relevant information about criminal activity to call the Grand Forks detachment at Grand Forks Detachment at 250-442-8288 or to phone anonymous tips to BC Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
