CFSEU- BC Seizes Guns and Drugs
Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit – British Columbia seized a number of restricted weapons, ammunition, drugs and precursor chemicals after a warrant was executed at a business in the 2000-block of No. 5 Road in Richmond on March 8, 2012.
Police seized three restricted weapons, ammunition, six kilogram bricks of cocaine, 24.7 kilograms of methamphetamine as well as other firearm and drug-related items. Investigators also discovered 1,600 litres and nearly 227 kilograms of precursor material believed to be used in the production of methamphetamine.
The warrant followed the arrest of two Richmond men on March 7, 2012.
“This is another example of the work that CFSEU-BC members do in so many communities,” says spokesperson Sgt. Ghalib Bhayani. “The removal of a significant amount of dangerous drugs and three semi-automatic handguns from the street certainly reduces the risk to the public. Mr. Chia was not only illegally in possession of these guns, but he had already been prohibited from possessing any firearms at all.”
Henry Kal-Geat CHIA, 26, is charged with a total of 11 counts for the possession of restricted weapons while prohibited, unauthorized possession of firearms, possession of restricted firearms with ammunition, cocaine trafficking, possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, and possession of methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking.
Phu Manh NGUYEN, 31, is also charged with one count of possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.
