Terrace traffic stop results in major drug bust

A Prince Rupert man, as well as a resident of Terrace were arrested and face numerous charges after suspicions during a routine traffic stop turned into several arrest warrants and the investigation of several residences in the Terrace area on Friday.

By the time all the paper work was filed, there had been raids on three locations, a house in the 3800-block of Dobbie Street, a house in the 4700-block of Straume Avenue, and a residence and a shed in the 4800-block of Walsh Avenue.

Terrace RCMP seized marijuana, cocaine, cash, weapons and drug-packaging equipment as part of their investigation, which is ongoing.

The materials seized across the city indicate a multi faceted street drug operation, which has now been interrupted. The two men arrested were released, but the RCMP Federal North District Drug Section is seeking further information from the public about any of the happenings at the properties searched over the weekend.
