Two men from Duncan were taken into custody and police are still investigating. Police said the public is not believed to be at risk in relation to the incident.
This represents a significant seizure of illicit drugs from our community, Staff Sgt. Kurt Bosnell, in charge of the General Investigation Section, said in a statement.
With the presence of fentanyl, the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP treated this as high risk and immediately sought the assistance of the RCMP’s Clandestine Laboratory Enforcement and Response Team to assist with the seizure.
