Investigation into Prince George-area Drug Trafficking Group Leads to Seizures and Possible Charges
Prince George – A multi-year investigation by the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of BC’s (CFSEU-BC) Prince George investigative team into the alleged drug trafficking activities of several individuals in the Prince George region has resulted in the seizure of significant quantities of illegal drugs and firearms.
Beginning in 2019, CFSEU-BC’s North District investigative team began and led an investigation into a group of individuals based in Prince George suspected of involvement in cocaine trafficking happening in the area. The investigation, which uncovered links between the suspects and full-patch Hells Angels members, resulted in the execution of seven search warrants in February 2021.
Seized during the investigation was 1.7 kilograms of cocaine, over 70 kilograms of cannabis/cannabis resin, 958 cannabis plants, over 3000 pills of various types, MDMA, LSD, 29 firearms and ammunition, $40,000 in Canadian currency, a money counter, 3 trucks, and a ring valued at over $100,000.
Four men and one woman were arrested and released without charges during the investigation and while charges have not yet been laid by the Public Prosecution Service of Canada (PPSC), potential charges include a variety of drug and firearms-related charges, as well as Criminal Organization-related charges under the Criminal Code of Canada. Additional updates will be provided once charges are laid.
