CHILLIWACK, B.C. - Police say an alleged dial-a-dope ring has been shut down in Chilliwack, B.C., and five people have been arrested.

RCMP say officers received tips in May 2016 about a group selling narcotics throughout the city.

They say a lengthy investigation began, where officers covertly gathered evidence about the alleged dial-a-dope ring.

Mounties executed two search warrants in Chilliwack on Jan. 11 and seized cocaine, two kilograms of marijuana, $30,000 in cash, four vehicles and other evidence.

Four men and a woman were arrested.

Police say they will submit a report to Crown counsel, who will decide whether criminal charges should be laid.
