A Surrey dispensary run by a well-known local pot activist is under close watch by the Surrey RCMP.
“They came in and said shut it down, they took the keys from our people and went out.”
Don Briere’s Marijuana Dispensary, Da Kine Glass & Gifts, has been under close watch since Wednesday.
“I asked if I can go in and they said no because it’s currently under investigation.”
Sergeant Alanna Dunlop with Surrey RCMP says Mounties are responding to a controlled drugs and substances investigation.
Briere says Mounties are guarding the store but have no idea what they are looking for.
“They came in yesterday but they seem to be having trouble getting a warrant. They are just waiting and waiting.”
He says Mounties have yet to search the business.
“The RCMP officer sitting at the front of the store says they are currently waiting for a warrant. If they don’t get this warrant then they are going to have to wait another day because they don’t issue warrant at night.”
Dunlop says three were arrested but released right away.
