Maple Ridge B.C.- One year after police notified the public of a 7-month drug investigation charges have been approved against three people.

In June of 2021, what started as a street level drug investigation, quickly grew to a multi-jurisdictional and multi-residential execution of search warrants. In February of 2022, the culmination of this investigation led to the Ridge Meadows Street Enforcement Unit (SEU) making the largest fentanyl drug seizure in Ridge Meadows RCMP history.
