Burnaby RCMP seize fentanyl, cocaine from man's underpants

Drugs, cash, cell phones confiscated after car caught speeding

Speeding was the undoing of a pair of men driving around Burnaby with illegal drugs in their car last week.

Police spotted the speeding vehicle in the 7000 block of Patterson Avenue just after 6:30 p.m. last Thursday, according to Burnaby RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Mike Kalanj. 

Officers pulled the vehicle over, and a subsequent search of the car turned up illegal cannabis, four cell phones and more than $800.

At the RCMP detachment after their arrest, one of the men also pulled a baggie of suspected fentanyl and cocaine from his underpants, according to Kalanj.

The investigation is ongoing, Kalanj said.
