Guns, drugs seized in co-ordinated police raids

Police executed search warrants on homes in Aldergrove and Walnut Grove last Friday, seizing weapons and a range of illegal drugs

Two people were arrested, while guns and drugs were seized in two separate police raids of Langley homes — one in Aldergrove and the other in Walnut Grove — last Friday (April 22).

After a lengthy investigation by the Langley RCMP Drug Section into a local crime group’s drug dealings, police executed the search warrants with help from the Langley RCMP Prolific Offender Suppression Team, Street Enforcement Unit and the Emergency Response Team.

Included among the items seized that day were handguns, magazine clips, rifles, a shotgun, various types of ammunition and a cross bow.

A variety of drugs were seized including heroin, methamphetamine, crack cocaine, powder cocaine, MDMA (also known as ecstasy) as well as suspected fake Oxycontin pills, along with a significant amount of cash.

Police arrested two people during the execution of the warrant and as the investigation continues will be recommending numerous criminal charges against these and other members of this group, said Langley RCMP.

“It is critical to the long-term safety and living quality of Langley that we, the RCMP, continue to effectively target local and regional crime groups,” said Langley RCMP Supt. Murray Power.

“Any groups engaged in drug trafficking, weapons possession and or use are a real and credible threat to our community. Our specialized units in Langley will continue to work collectively and keep the pressure on persons engaged in crime.”

Anyone with information that might assist with any of the above investigations, is asked to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200. To remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
