A large quantity of drugs, money and ammunition was seized Wednesday from a North Burnaby home, say Vancouver Police Department.

The seizure was part of an investigation into a group of drug traffickers that has spanned from Vancouver to Surrey, Chilliwack and Abbotsford, say VPD.

Dubbed Project Trio, it was aimed at disrupting the supply of drugs coming into the South Slope area of Vancouver. Those involved in the group are known to be violent and involved in gang activity.

The investigation led to officers executing a search warrant on a North Burnaby home on March 12. Items seized included digital scales, packaging material, several boxes of 9mm ammunition, about six pounds of marijuana, 14 ounces of heroin, a quarter kilo of cocaine, 20 oxy 80s and about $5000 in cash.

The investigation is ongoing and charges are expected, VPD said.
