Sur­rey: Sur­rey RCMP has ar­rested a man and made a sig­nif­i­cant seizure of hand­guns and sus­pected il­licit drugs as part of an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into an in­ci­dent of ut­ter­ing threats. On No­vem­ber 28, the Sur­rey RCMP Gen­eral In­ves­ti­ga­tion Unit with the as­sis­tance of the Sur­rey Gang En­force­ment Team, the Strike Force Tar­get Team, and the Emer­gency Re­sponse Team, ar­rested a 21-year-old man from Sur­rey after re­ceiv­ing a re­port that he had al­legedly ut­tered threats and pointed a firearm, on No­vem­ber 26. Con­tin­u­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, Sur­rey RCMP ex­e­cuted a search war­rant at a res­i­dence in the Whalley area on No­vem­ber 29. As a re­sult, in­ves­ti­ga­tors lo­cated and seized a sig­nif­i­cant quan­tity of sus­pected co­caine and metham­phetamine, along with 6 hand­guns, 7 firearm mag­a­zines, 2 si­lencers, and over 100 rounds of am­mu­ni­tion.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on-go­ing, and charges have not been laid at this time. The 21-yearold man, who is as­so­ci­ated to in­di­vid­u­als with ties to the Lower Main­land Gang Con­flict, is cur­rently in cus­tody.
