Abbotsford: As part of continued efforts to target drug traffickers and those linked to the Lower Mainland Gang Conflict, the Abbotsford Police Department Drug Enforcement Unit (DEU) executed two search warrants on March 8. Two people were arrested and cash, drugs and a firearm were seized.
The search warrants were executed at two residences in Abbotsford where an assault rifle, over $35,000, fentanyl, crack cocaine and other evidence consistent with drug trafficking was seized.
Charges laid include weapons-related offences and possession for the purpose of trafficking (“PPT”) in fentanyl and cocaine.
Two individuals were arrested during this investigation:
- Kulvir Sandhu, 23 years old, has been remanded in custody.
- A second male was released, with charges currently pending.
“It is anticipated the arrest of these individuals and the items seized will significantly disrupt the drug trade in Abbotsford and further improve public safety through the targeting of gang associates within the community”, states APD Criminal Investigation Branch Staff Sergeant Dan Culbertson.
