The CCRU, working with our colleagues at the RCMP detachments within the Cariboo-Chilcotin area, will continue to target prolific offenders operating in our communities. Seizures like this are a significant blow to those who seek to profit off the addiction and suffering of the vulnerable in the communities we serve. The RCMP, along with our health care and community partners, continue to battle the opioid crisis in our region. Enforcement remains a key element of that battle, and we are always seeking information from the public to further our investigations. (Cpl Kevin Fung CCRU)

The Williams Lake RCMP, as always, encourages the public to report suspicious activities they believe associated to drug trafficking to the detachment at (250) 392-6211, or through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
