Underground bunker a drug lab for illegal cannabis, magic mushrooms: Prince George RCMP

Prince George RCMP say they found an illicit cannabis and magic mushroom operation – which included some holiday product – inside a number of shipping containers which were used as tunnels into the side of a hill.

The facility, located on the side of a local property, included an underground bunker with a cannabis oil extraction lab, “commercial grade” packing area and a growing area for psilocybin mushrooms, police said in a statement earlier this month.

Also found: Advent calendars produced for distribution of illicit cannabis products.

The makeshift bunker was one of two drug operations dismantled in the northern B.C. city so far this month.

At a second property, police found cocaine, steroids and prescription pills such as Adderall, cialis and xanax.

It was at a third location where Mounties seized thousands of dollars worth of illicit drugs, which were “laid out like a pharmacy” offering narcotics to illegal cannabis.

In total, police seized 1.5 kilograms of cocaine, an abundance of prescription pills, hundreds of doses of steroids and thousands of doses of GHB – also known as the date rape drug – along with $35,600 in cash, a Dodge Ram 1500 and a 2020 GMC Canyon Denali.

Seven people were arrested, but charges have not been laid at this time.

Police say the investigation is ongoing.
