For the second time in two months, Prince George RCMP say they've busted a downtown drug house full of dirty needles.

A 40-year-old man and 22-year-old woman, both known to police, were arrested Friday morning at the duplex located in the 2100 block of Oak Street.

"Inside they located an abundance of suspected stolen property — some of it has been confirmed stolen — a small quantity of cocaine and over 1,000 needles," said RCMP Constable Sonja Blom. 

Police are recommending charges of being unlawfully in a dwelling house and mischief against the pair.

"It's a problem house that's well known to police," said Blom.

In November, Prince George RCMP busted a drug house nearby where officers discovered 10,000 dirty needles.
