Vancouver police seize ecstasy pills stamped with Olympic rings
Vancouver police have found a stash of ecstasy pills stamped with the Olympic rings.
Officers responding to a 911 call about a home invasion in the 4300 block of Nanaimo Street discovered the drugs, according to a Vancouver Police Department press release sent out today (December 10).
Police seized 107,000 ecstasy pills (worth over $1 million on the street), as well as a six-ounce “partial brick” of cocaine ($17,000).
“Some of the ecstacy tablets were imprinted with peace signs and the Olympic rings,” the release stated.
In the release, Inspector Brad Desmarais of the department’s gangs and drugs section called the find “one of the top 5 largest seizures in Vancouver”.
Charges have not yet been laid against two men arrested by the police. They have both been released with conditions.
Ecstasy is a psychoactive drug that contains—or is represented as containing—the synthetic substance 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine, or MDMA.
