During the execution of a search warrant, Coquitlam RCMP Uniformed Crime Reduction Unit recovered stolen property, drugs, and cash with a total value in excess of 32,000 dollars.
On October 21, 2020, Coquitlam RCMP received a report of what appeared to be live ammunition stored improperly along with high-powered pellet guns, and a large bag of suspected crystal methamphetamine during an eviction in the 1600-block of Renton Avenue, Port Coquitlam.
Police attended the residence and observed a black bike on the curb that resembled a bike stolen, earlier in the month. The suspects returned to the house a short time after police arrived, and were arrested for multiple offences including carrying a concealed weapon.
A 42-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman are facing the following charges:
- Possession for the purpose of trafficking drugs,
- Possession of property obtained by crime,
- Careless use/storage of ammunition,
- Carrying a concealed weapon.
The evidence seized during the search included:
- Four scooters, valued at 6000.00 dollars,
- Five bikes, valued at 16,300.00 dollars,
- Suspected fentanyl, crystal methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine and drug paraphernalia,
- Cash totalling 1,810.00
During Crime Prevention Week, police want to remind people to keep all personal property locked up and out of sight to prevent theft.
