Two men appeared in Chilliwack court Friday in connection with drugs, money and guns found in an Edward Street apartment on Thursday.

The men were arrested when the Chilliwack RCMP Crime Reduction Unit executed a search warrant at a unit in the 9300 block of Edward Street.

Lower Mainland District Emergency Response Team (ERT) assisted in the execution of the warrant that found significant amounts of what police believe to be heroin, crack cocaine and methamphetamine. Also found in the unit was cash and a firearm.

At the time of the warrant execution, seven people were detained but just two were arrested and charged.

The drugs located in the apartment were pre-packaged and looked to be ready for distribution, according to Chiliwack RCMP spokesperson Const. Tracy Wolbeck.

"The Crime Reduction Unit is very proactive in breaking down the drug trade here and this is another example of that work being done well," Wolbeck said.
