Five people were arrested after two search warrants were executed simultaneously in Burnaby around Royal Oak Avenue and Imperial Street, say Burnaby RCMP.

The operation was led by Burnaby RCMP's Prolific Offenders Suppression Team (POST), with support from the RCMP's regional emergency response team, on May 25.

In addition to the people arrested, police found stolen property including credit cards, sporting equipment, electronics, and a replica rifle, along with marihuana in the two homes.

Following the search, both houses were inspected by the Burnaby Fire Department  and condemned as uninhabitable. The occupants were ordered to vacate the properties, which were both already slated for demolition.

Before the police action, Burnaby RCMP had received numerous complaints about criminal activity at the houses.

"The Burnaby RCMP, in partnership with the City of Burnaby Fire Department, are working to together to deal with problem residences in order to keep the citizens of Burnaby safe and to reduce crime," said Burnaby RCMP Corp. Melissa Brown of POST.
