A significant amount of the cannabis was in edible form and had an estimated value of $390,000, while approximately $420,000 in cash was seized. 

Guns, money and cars were seized along with 110 pounds of illegal cannabis after Port Moody police raided two Tri-City properties last month.

The warrants were executed at a home in Port Moody and a commercial space in Port Coquitlam on June 18 in what police said was related to a lengthy drug-trafficking investigation. A 50-year-old woman was taken into custody but charges have yet to be approved. 

“The cannabis seized is believed to be unassociated to a licensed cannabis retailer and consultation with the Community Safety Unit, the Provincial body responsible for compliance and enforcement under the Cannabis Control and Licensing Act, is ongoing,” police said in a statement. 

A significant amount of the cannabis was in edible form and had an estimated value of $390,000, while approximately $420,000 in cash was seized. 

Three firearms turned up over the course of the search, one of which was found inside a hidden compartment that was built into a shelf. Five vehicles were also seized. 

“Given the volume of cash and cannabis seized, police believe this operation is associated to organized crime,” investigators said in a statement. 

Police added that the investigation is ongoing.
