RCMP take down huge crystal-meth operation




Members of the RCMP's “E” Division Clandestine Laboratory Team (suited up in protective gear) prepare to get hosed down by members of the Forest Grove and 100 Mile Fire-Rescue during a crystal-meth operation take down.


Four men are in custody in 100 Mile following an RCMP bust of a large commercial crystal methamphetamine facility on Biss Road, just south of Forest Grove,Canda Friday.

Police had been investigating the lab since January, intensifying Monday and leading to arrests and dismantling of the operation Friday and Saturday, May 4-5. The investigation included forces from the Langley RCMP Drug Section, Vancouver,Canada Police Department, RCMP E Division Clandestine Laboratory Team along with local RCMP and fire and ambulance crews.

Four men were arrested as part of the raid including 33-year-old Daryl Paul Peterson from Forest Grove,Canada who has been charged with production of methamphetamine, along with 23-year-old, Justin Norman Larsen of Abbotsford,Canada. Marc Tulio Curcio, 39 of Langley,Canada and Simon Shipling Luk, 30 of Vancouver,Canada have been charged with production of methamphetamine and possession for the purpose of trafficking. All four appeared in 100 Mile House Provincial Court, May 7 and in Williams Lake,Canada May 9.

“This investigation resulted in the seizure of approximately 16 kgs of methamphetamine that police allege was produced at (the) property,” said Sgt. Sean Neary of RCMP

North District Drug Section. “The “E” Division Clandestine Laboratory Team located and subsequently dismantled a sophisticated, commercial size laboratory capable of producing large quantities of methamphetamine. A vehicle and several firearms were also seized by police during the investigation.”


The drugs were transported to the Lower Mainland area of B.C. for distribution.

The investigation is still ongoing at this time.

Firefighters from Forest Grove, 100 Mile and B.C. Ambulance were on the scene both Saturday and Sunday, suited up in protective gear to dismantle the extensive operation. Const. Rob Christenson explained that fire and ambulance crews are required on scene because of potentially dangerous chemicals that are used to produce methamphetamine.

“It is an unstable environment and that is why we have emergency services here,” he said.”You never know what is going to happen. There are so many different kinds of tools and heaters used in an operation like this.”
