Massive doda bust in Delta
Cache is several times larger than the municipality's previous seizure
In a raid Friday in the 8600 block of 120th Street, investigators found 132 boxes of the pods, said Sgt. Sharlene Brooks revealed Tuesday.
There were about 36,000 pods in the boxes, worth an estimated $760,000, Brooks said.
No arrests have been made in connection with this latest seizure in the municipality south of Vancouver.
In mid-August, Delta police said they'd found 3,600 opium poppy pods along with six kilograms of the drug doda and took a 47-year-old Surrey man into custody.
Doda is a powder derived from poppy pods and is often mixed as a tea.
Addiction counsellors in Vancouver's South Asian community say doda addiction is a growing concern and is second only to alcohol addiction in prevalence among community members.
