With assistance from Canada Post – Security & Investigation Services,  Department of Fisheries & Oceans, and a police dog team from Terrace RCMP, three adults and a youth were taken into custody from the residence. The mail delivery driver was also taken into custody.

The search confirmed heavy drug activity inside the residence linked to the postal outlet, according to police.

They also say an undisclosed quantity of cash was seized from the residence.
