Two people have been arrested on drug charges following an investigation into a problem house in Harrison Hot Springs last week.

Acting on community concerns, Aggasiz RCMP initiated an investigation into drug trafficking from a residence located in the 300 block of Chestnut Avenue. Extensive Police work culminated in a search warrant and the arrest of two Agassiz residents. Taken into custody were a 36-year-old female and a 34-year-old male, described by police as a prolific offender.

The two will appear in Chilliwack Provincial Court on July 29 to answer to a charge of possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking.

“With our recent community consultative group drug trafficking was identified as a priority issue,” said  Cpl Len vanNieuwenhuizen. “  Through our crime reduction strategies we are able to focus on and resolve these issues to keep our community safe.”
