Uniform Gang Enforcement Team seizes drug and weapons in Fruitvale
On Saturday, April 1, the CFSEU Uniform Gang Enforcement Team seized firearms, ammunition, suspected illicit drugs and other drug trafficking related items from a vehicle and residence during an investigation in Fruitvale, according to RCMP Sgt. Mike Wicentowich.
Wicentowich said UGET arrested a 40-year-old man, a 33-year-old Fruitvale man, 33-year-old Fruitvale woman, and 33-year-old Trail woman. All four suspects were released pending further investigation into an alleged drug trafficking and weapon possession offence.
UGET has been travelling BC to assist smaller rural detachments with local high priority targets believed to be trafficking drugs and in possession of weapons. Trail RCMP appreciates and supports their efforts to curb drug trafficking and prevent future violence during their operation in the Kootenay, Wicentowich said.
