CHILLIWACK, B.C. - Four people from Chilliwack, B.C., have been charged in what police allege is a dial-a-dope ring.

Police seized various drugs, including hundreds of pills containing MDMA, firearms, rifles, bear spray, a conducted energy weapon and cash.

Mounties say that in late 2014, undercover officers bought heroin valued at $11,600 from a male suspect.

A news release says officers were also offered to purchase brass knuckles equipped with built-in conducted energy weapons.

Brian Schapansky, Dina Anthony, Constantinos Anthony and Jamie Rogers have been charged with various drug offences and are expected to make a court appearance later this month.
