Charges Approved Against Alleged Drug Trafficking Syndicate

Crown Counsel has approved charges against three men in a Fraser Valley drug distribution network that operated in Northern BC cities and towns including Williams Lake and Quesnel.

CFSEU BC Media Relations Officer Constable Jordan McLellan says a warrant has been issued for two of the men’s arrests.

“Raymond Morrissey, a 59-year-old Chilliwack man, is also charged with one count of unlawfully possessing a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking,” he says.

“The whereabouts of Morrissey and Thiessen is currently unknown.”

33 Year Clayton Archie Eheler, who was also charged, was arrested in Richmond last week and later released from custody on numerous conditions.

The men were taken into custody when investigators intercepted an alleged drug runner with connections to the Fraser Valley crime cell as he drove to Fort St. John and met with other members of the trafficking group in May 2015.

With the help of the Fort St. John RCMP, CFSEU investigators seized 1.8kg of powdered cocaine, 1.6kg of crack cocaine and just under $138,000 in cash after a search of the vehicle was conducted.

The BC CFSEU began an investigation into the Fraser Valley crime cell in August of 2014, seizing cash, weapons, and over five million dollars worth of illegal and potentially deadly drugs including fentanyl.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Morrissey or Thiessen are asked to contact their local RCMP detachment or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
