PRINCE GEORGE, BC: Two Prince George residents have been arrested following a large seizure of cannabis and cash on Saturday…

Officers of the Prince George RCMP’s Street Crew Unit executed a Search Warrant under the Cannabis Act at a residence in Prince George.

An adult male and an adult female were arrested at the residence. The search of the property yielded more than 55 kilograms (121 pounds) of dried cannabis, a significant amount of other forms of cannabis products, several firearms, ammunition and more than $550,000 in cash. Total value of the cash and cannabis is estimated to be approximately $1,000,000.

“This is a substantial seizure resulting from the investigation of persons previously not known to police” says Insp. Shaun Wright, Operations Officer for the Prince George RCMP. “Our officers will continue to target those persons that do not abide by Canadian law, including the Cannabis Act.”

The suspects were released without charge at this time, pending the completion of the investigation and charge approval from the Federal Prosecution Service of Canada.

The Prince George RCMP is committed to enforcement and prevention initiatives that combat the possession and sale of drugs in the community. If you have any information about the illegal distribution of cannabis in the Prince George area, please contact the Prince George RCMP at (250)561-3300 or anonymously contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Written and released by Prince George RCMP.
