RCMP search flop house

New Aiyansh residence said to be scene of illegal activity

OFFICERS from the LISIMS/Nass Valley RCMP detachment have executed a search warrant on a problem property that has been the source of numerous criminal complaints in New Aiyansh, says detachment commander Sgt. Donovan Tait.

The residence, located in the 4600 block of Wright Blvd., was served with a “Problem Property” notice by the RCMP in March in an effort to curb the rampant illegal activity occurring there, he said.

The house is well known as a “flop house” where alcohol and drugs are used to excess, Tait continued.

“At that time the RCMP offered the residents information and support that may assist them with changing the behavior at the house. Officers noted evidence of extreme drug and alcohol consumption in the house,” he said.

A quantity of non-prescription drugs were seized and one adult male was arrested and detained on unrelated matters.

“In the spirit of crime reduction, we have monitored this residence for quite some time and we are working with the village officials in an effort to effectively deal with the activity,” said Tait.

“This residence is a place where our vulnerable youth and those struggling with dependency issues can get access to liquor and drugs. We exercised great discretion in dealing with the resident’s of the house but public safety was now in jeopardy – they left us no choice.”

New Aiyansh village government officials attended the scene to provide support to our officers and the offenders, Tait added.

“The support of our village government is crucial for the success of our crime reduction efforts in the Nation”.
