Vancouver cops raid fentanyl lab in Richmond
Vancouver police say they have shut down what they called a major fentanyl lab in Richmond and seized nearly $8 million in drugs.
Investigators seized more than seven kilograms of what they suspect to be fentanyl, 800 grams of methamphetamines, and $39,000 cash inside the lab, according to a VPD news release.
A man arrested near the lab was found in possession of an additional 15 kilograms of suspected fentanyl, along with two kilograms of cocaine and nearly $48,000 cash in a nearby vehicle.
Police began the investigation in January, focusing on a group of criminals that were manufacturing and trafficking illicit drugs at various locations in Metro Vancouver.
The investigation led police to a fentanyl lab operating inside a house in a residential Richmond neighbourhood.
