PRINCE GEORGE — Recently, police shut down a crack shack in Prince George. Now, the force is confirming that in the summer, two young people were found at the residence.

Police were executing a search in August, when they found the 14 and 15 year olds. Officers returned to the home on Friday November 20, finding an estimated 10,000 needles inside, and arresting 15 people.

Cpl. Craig Douglass says since the summer, the home had clearly deteriorated. When police find children in an unsafe home, they call the Ministry for Children and Family Development.

In a statement, the Ministry says it “would never, and has never, placed a child in care in a home where there is known illegal activity and commerce taking place.” Contrary to some reports, police confirm the youth were not living in the home. MCFD and police are working together on a task force, which reaches out to youth getting involved in crime & drug activity.
