Surrey RCMP seize allegedly stolen bank, ID cards and suspected drugs

Police say officers also found multiple cell phones, electric card reader

Surrey RCMP say a “large quantity” of suspected illicit drugs, and several allegedly stolen bank and ID cards, have been seized.

Police said officers were patrolling in the area of 134th Street and 64th Avenue on April 25, around 2 p.m., when they found two men “arguing,” with a vehicle “associated to the men was left unoccupied and idling nearby,” according to a release Thursday (April 30).

The two men were arrested for possession for the purpose of trafficking after officers saw “evidence” inside the vehicle, Surrey RCMP said.

After searching the vehicle, police said, a “large quantity” of suspected illicit drugs, such as pills, cocaine and fentanyl were found, along with multiple cell phones, an electronic card reader and allegedly stolen ID and bank cards.

Police said that one man was released at the scene, “pending further investigation,” while the other man had five outstanding warrants for his arrest. He was taken into custody.

No charges have been laid yet, but the investigation is ongoing, Surrey RCMP said.

“This seizure is a great example of pro-active policing by our frontline officers,” said Corporal Joanie Sidhu. “They saw something that looked out of place, they took the time to find out what was going on, and ended up taking illicit drugs off the street and recovering stolen property.”
