ABBOTSFORD, B.C. - Abbotsford police officers didn't have to troll for long before hitting pay dirt in the latest drug crackdown in the Fraser Valley city.

Const. Ian Macdonald says the blitz produced 26 charges against 10 people in just four days.

The crackdown targeted cocaine and heroin traffickers in Abbotsford's downtown core.

Macdonald says seven women and three men, ranging in age from 28 to 52, were picked up following drug purchases by undercover officers cruising city streets, laneways and parking lots.

He says all 10 suspects are very well known to the department.

Abbotsford police say the 10 people have been involved in more than 1,200 interactions with officers since 2005, with 146 charges recommended against them.
