Three people are facing charges after police seized approximately $17,000 worth of drugs from a home in Prince George, B.C., on Wednesday.
In total, 434 ecstasy pills and 109 Tylenol 3 pills along with amounts of heroin, crystal methamphetamine and cocaine were found at a residence in the 3000-block of Westwood Drive. Police also discovered a large sum of cash.
A man and a woman each face four counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking. Another man faces one undisclosed charge.
The suspects were previously known to police because of property and drug offences.
RCMP believe the suspects are linked to organized crime.
"We don't know exactly which organized crime group they were dealing with or are involved in, but we do know that the drugs have come through organized crime. That's how they're being processed and distributed," RCMP spokesperson Const. Lesley Smith told ctvbc.ca.
RCMP also made an unrelated drug bust in the 4000-block of First Avenue in Prince George, B.C., on June 28. They seized more than 200 ecstasy tablets in addition to quantities of cocaine, crack cocaine and more than $20,000 in cash.
