The Prince George RCMP say three people are facing charges following a search warrant on a downtown business.
Local Mounties executed a Controlled Drugs & Substances Act search warrant at a business on the 1100 block of 3rd Avenue Friday afternoon. A portion of 3rd Avenue was closed to the public for a short time during the search period.
As a result, three people were arrested and a variety of different drugs were seized including methamphetamine, marijuana, morphine, MDA, and a number of unidentified pills. Stolen property from a Break & Enter was also taken in by police. The three accused have all since been released on Promise To Appear documents for a future court date.
Police say the drug bust was part of a month-long investigation which saw local businesses and workers come forward to report suspicious activity. “Often when you have frequent people coming and going, very short durations or periods of times to the residence, whatever it might be,” Douglass said. “If your gut just doesn’t feel right about, it’s probably not right, so give us a call and we’ll check it out.”
For now, the hope is that the streets will be kept a little safer while police keep a watchful eye out for criminals. “Our eyes are certainly wide open to that particular business and those people involved and we will carry that through and any evidence that we find will go to charges,” said Douglass.
Police say charges for the arrested are anticipated and that this search warrant was supported by information given to the RCMP by concerned citizens and business owners in the community.
