Meth sting

A series of co-ordinated police raids involving more than 150 officers swept across three cities to bust five meth labs early Thursday morning.

The province’s Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit had been monitoring the labs in Vancouver, Surrey and Port Moody over the past 12 months. The bust included two businesses and three private residences.

Investigators found significant amounts of chemicals used in the production of methamphetamine in the labs. Finished drug products were also found at the two residential properties in Port Moody.

A police statement said the Outlaw Motorcycle Gang Enforcement section has linked the labs to B.C. biker gangs.

Police made two arrests and are looking for three more people.

The Combined Forces unit includes officers from the RCMP, the Vancouver Police Department, municipal and RCMP emergency response teams and the Clandestine Laboratories Unit.
