Now that the RCMP have packed up, Langley Township will be taking a look at the house where almost $400,000 worth of illegal drugs were found.
The July raid by the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit (CFSEU) found almost $400,000 worth of cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin, crack, oxycontin, and other chemicals.
Three men, described as high-ranking members of the Aldergrove-based 856 gang, were arrested and may face charges.
Langley Township officials are interested in the house based on information from the RCMP.
â€œItâ€™s been brought to our attention because of the raid,â€ said Bill Storie, the head of Bylaw Enforcement for the Township.
The house, in the 4600 block of 236th Street, was described as a sizeable building of approximately 10,000 square feet.
According to Sgt. Lindsey Houghton of the CFSEU, officers found the interior had been divided into a number of separate suites, one of which was being used as a drug production facility.
Storie noted that the Township only allows a maximum of one suite for single family homes. The building is certainly not in an area zoned for any kind of apartment building.
The process of checking into the home may take a little time and will go through the normal procedures, said Storie.
The owner will be contacted and there will likely be an inspection.
If there are any violations of bylaws, the Township will try to bring things into compliance.
The first step is generally by asking for voluntary compliance, but the Township can progress to fines or court action.
