The VicPD Strike Force team arrested three people after executing a search warrant and seizing drugs, cash and stolen items on April 22.

Late on Wednesday afternoon, police searched a home in the 1100-block of Kings Avenue. Inside the residence, Strike Force officers found “a significant amount of fentanyl,” more than $40,000 in cash and stolen tools and bikes. Weapons including a crossbow were also seized.

According to VicPD, one of the recovered bicycles was valued at more than $6,000.

While officers were loading the seized items into a police vehicle, members of the community approached them to say thank you.

The VicPD Strike Force is an undercover unit currently focused on investigating property crime and catching prolific offenders as property crime has gone up significantly, said Bowen Osoko, spokesperson for VicPD.

The team relies on tips from the community and ask that anyone with information relating to thefts, break-ins and other property crimes call the Strike Force line directly at 250-995-7260.
