Alocal man faces numerous charges after Chilliwack RCMP found drugs, a prohibited gun and point-of-sale terminals at the Trader's Inn downtown.
On Oct. 5, members of the Chilliwack RCMP Drug Section and Property Crime Unit executed a search warrant at a unit in the hotel in the 45900 block of Yale Road.
The raid was in response to numerous complaints of drug trafficking from the unit. A 32-year-old male and a 23-year-old female were taken into custody.
A search of the unit resulted in a seizure of heroin and methamphetamine, cash and various tools used in trafficking drugs.
Also seized was a prohibited weapon-a sawed-down rifle resembling a handgun, along with stolen point-of-sale terminals. These terminals are often stolen for reading credit cards and obtaining personal credit card data.
"A common trend observed in the execution of drug warrants is the recovery of stolen property which is traded in exchange for drugs," said RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Kurtis Bosnell.
Jeremy Commodore was held in custody and has been charged with two counts of possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking, two counts of possessing a firearm contrary to a firearms prohibition order, unauthorized possession of a prohibited weapon and one count of breach of probation.
The female was released from custody and is scheduled to appear in court Jan. 7.
