August 24, 2018 - 11:27 AM

WILLIAMS LAKE, B.C. - RCMP say six people have been arrested following the seizure of drugs, firearms and a large amount of cash at a home in Williams Lake, B.C.

Police say the seized drugs include fentanyl, heroin, cocaine and testosterone as well as miscellaneous pills and drug paraphernalia.

Insp. Jeff Pelley says in a news release that offences involving weapons and drugs, especially those alleged to include trafficking of fentanyl, are a high priority for the force.

The arrests and seizures came after an investigation that began during the July long weekend.

The investigation is ongoing, and court proceedings are set to begin in December.
