ERT aids in Aldergrove drug bust

A 20-year-old is facing drug trafficking charges.

Langley RCMP and the Emergency Response Team raided an Aldergrove home earlier this month and found drugs, cash, and a starter pistol.

The Mounties had begun an investigation into a home, and gave it a high priority because it was close to a school, said Cpl. Holly Largy, spokesperson for the local RCMP.

On Jan. 13, police executed a search warrant with the assistance of the ERT. Members of the Langley RCMP Street Enforcement Unit and general duty officers also took part in the search.

Investigators seized more than 30 grams of suspected crack cocaine, 20 grams of suspected powder cocaine, almost 40 grams of suspected methamphetamine, and more than 2.5 pounds of suspected marijuana.

Officers also found a starter pistol and more than $2,000 in cash.

A 20-year-old resident is facing possible charges of trafficking a controlled substance, and possession for the purpose of trafficking.
