Man with an Extensive History of Trafficking and Drug Offences has been Charged

One man with an extensive history of trafficking and drug offences has been charged after he was caught in possession of a prohibited substance after breaching his conditions and allegedly attempting to flee from police.

On the morning of March 21, 2017, the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of B.C. (CFSEU-BC) Uniform Gang Enforcement Team (UGET) conducted a routine traffic stop in Burnaby. The vehicle’s registered owner had an active class 7 driver’s license but no visible “N”, as well as, the vehicle was associated to trafficking and suspicious occurrences.

Officers followed the suspect vehicle a short distance in order to find a safe place to conduct a traffic stop. When officers exited the vehicle, the driver accelerated away at a high rate of speed. Officers found the vehicle parked at a dead end street.

The officers immediately arrested the driver for alleged flight and dangerous operation. Officers also detected an extremely strong smell of marijuana emanating from the vehicle, and a search of the vehicle turned up a baggie of marijuana in the glove compartment, three cell phones, and a marijuana grinder. A search of the area also resulted in officers finding a baggie marijuana, and what was suspected to be cocaine, believed to be tossed from the vehicle.

19-year old Jaskaran Johal has now been charged with one count of operating a motor vehicle pursued by a peace officer operating a motor vehicle, did fail, without reasonable excuse and in order to evade the peace officer. He is charged with one count of operating a motor vehicle, in a manner that was dangerous to the public. He is charged with one count of possession of a controlled substance, crack- cocaine, for the purpose of trafficking.

The CFSEU-BC would like to thank the Burnaby RCMP for their help with this file.
