Search Warrant from early November nets Prince Rupert RCMP with shotgun, drugs and arrest of city resident

The Prince Rupert detachment of the RCMP is making note of the execution of a search warrant from early November on a home at 317 Crestview Drive that has resulted in the arrest of a Prince Rupert resident and the seizure, of drugs, money and a weapon

"Front line officers reacted quickly to a report received regarding threatening messages. The report led to a search warrant being drafted and executed. While in the house officers also noticed evidence of a drug operation and second warrant was drafted and executed." -- Constable Brody Hemrich Prince Rupert RCMP

In their information release today, it was noted that from the November 8th search approximately 280 doses of suspected drugs, with a street value of $42,000 were seized. 

The RCMP will continue its investigation regarding these findings and will submit additional charges for Crown approval.
