A combination of firearms and drug-related charges have been laid against a 28-year-old Surrey man and a 23-year-old Surrey woman following a 2013 Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of BC (CFSEU-BC) investigation into their alleged criminal activities.
In August 2013 CFSEU-BC launched an investigation into the alleged drug trafficking and gun sale operation of a Surrey man who has a history of violence and drug offences. Between August and mid-September evidence was gathered that resulted in CFSEU-BC initially arresting three people on September 11th, 2013, including the two now charged.
- Upon arrest, the following items were seized:
- 79 individually wrapped “spit balls” containing powder cocaine
- 11 individually wrapped pieces of crack cocaine
- 26 individually wrapped “spit balls” of powder heroin
- One large flap of cocaine
- $630 in cash (CAD)
CFSEU-BC members subsequently executed a search warrant at two residences in Surrey, one in the 15000 block Croydon Drive and one in the 17000 block 26th Ave. At those residences two large safes were seized with the following items discovered inside:
- One .45 calibre Ruger P90DC semi-automatic handgun
- One .380 calibre Accu-Tek AT-380 semi-automatic handgun
- Two .380 calibre Smith & Wesson Walther PK380 semi-automatic handguns
- Several boxes of ammunition
- Approximately $25,500 in cash
- 297 grams of cocaine
- 5 grams of heroin
- 26 grams of methamphetamine
The estimated street value of all of the drugs seized, both off of those arrested and from the two residences, is approximately $24,000.
23-year-old Amy Teresa Pierre of Surrey has been charged with three counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking. While she has no previous criminal convictions, she has had a number of contacts wit bh police in recent years. Pierre is currently not in custody and her next scheduled court date is on July 17th in Surrey Provincial Court.
28-year-old Pete William Cameron of Surrey has been charged with:
- Seven counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking
- Four counts of possession of a restricted firearm with ammunition
- One count of possession of a firearm knowing that the serial number had been altered, defaced, or removed
- One count of possession of firearms while prohibited
Cameron is well-known to police and has a previous conviction for trafficking in a controlled substance. Pete Cameron is currently not in custody and his next scheduled court date is on July 17th in Surrey Provincial Court.
The third person initially arrested, a 38-year-old woman, has not been charged.
CFSEU-BC would like to thank the RCMP for their assistance and contributions to the investigation.
