Mounties arrested eight people and seized drugs and a firearm from a house on 224th Street on Wednesday.
Ridge Meadows RCMP acted on a search warrant for the house on the 11600 block just before noon on Wednesday and they seized oxycotin, methamphetamine, heroin, crack cocaine, and marijuana as well as one firearm.
All those arrested were later released.
“Police are recommending charges under the Controlled Drug and Substance Act against four of the eight persons that were arrested,” said Ridge Meadows RCMP Cpl. Alanna Dunlop. “Along with the illegal drugs, police seized other evidence, including cash that is attributable to drug dealing.
The house is boarded up and now has a “no occupancy” order on it from the Maple Ridge fire department and the bylaw office.
Two years ago a meth lab blew up in the house, which took police, firefighters, and a hazardous materials crew a day to clean up.
