Surrey RCMP make arrests to disrupt drug trade
Surrey: A number of new arrests have been made by Surrey Police who are accused of firing incidents and involved in local drug trade. Surrey RCMP said these arrests will help further to curb the violence in Surrey. On December 5th, a male was assaulted and held against his will in the area of 86th Avenue and 130th Street. Police arrested several accused in relation to this event. Charges of Forcible Confinement, Robbery, Assault with a Weapon, and Assault Causing Bodily Harm have now been laid against the following four males from Surrey: Davjit Randhawa (31 years old), Sukhdeep Dhaliwal (19 years old), Chaten Dhindsa (20 years old), and Gurpreet Dhudwal (18 years old). Randhawa and Dhindsa have also been charged with failing to comply with courtimposed conditions. A fifth suspect in the December 5th incident, Ravinder Samra, a 28 year male from Surrey, was arrested on December 11th, 2015. He was charged with Forcible Confinement, Robbery, Assault with a Weapon, and Posses- sion of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose. A sixth suspect, Karnjit Randhawa, a 27 year old male from Surrey, has not been located and is currently wanted by police. The victim is well known to police and continues to recover from his injuries. “We believe that arresting these individuals and advancing prosecutions against them will create a safer community,” says Surrey RCMP Officer in Charge, Chief Superintendent Bill Fordy. “We will continue to aggressively advance a broad base of strategies on those that we believe are associated with the violent acts that have played out on our streets.” The continuing enforcement by Surrey RCMP and the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit (CFSEU-BC) has allowed police to make significant headway in disrupting the low level drug trade and resulting violence over the past few months. As of November 29th, over 6,200 persons have been checked, almost 800 arrests and detentions made, and more than 160 weapons and firearms have been seized.
