RCMP say they have seized thousands of litres of industrial solvents and large amounts of precursor chemicals used to make synthetic drugs such as fentanyl.

The bust happened earlier this month at a home in rural Chilliwack.

A statement from the Mounties says along with the chemicals, officers found signs that they had disrupted construction of a clandestine drug lab capable of producing the deadly substances linked to BC's ongoing opioid crisis.

No arrests were made during the raid on June 2nd, and no charges have been laid but police say the investigation is continuing.
