Multiple Search Warrants conducted in relation to CFSEU-BC Investigation into Drug Trafficking and Organized Crime

This morning investigators with the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of British Columbia (CFSEU-BC), with support from Langley and Surrey RCMP, as well as assistance from the Lower Mainland Emergency Response Team (LMD-ERT), executed several search warrants in the area of Langley and Surrey, in relation to significant alleged drug trafficking and organized crime activity.

It is too early to speculate on what charges Crown may lay, however, our investigation is focused around alleged drug trafficking and organized crime activity.

A total of eight people have been arrested in relation to these search warrants. The investigation into the activity of this criminal group remains ongoing and there is no further information that police are able to publicly provide at this time.

“Today’s search warrants are in relation to an ongoing CFSEU-BC investigation into the alleged drug and gang activity of a lower mainland criminal group with ties throughout western Canada.  The evidence seized in the execution of these search warrants will greatly disrupt and impact the illegal activity of this criminal group and its associates.  Thus, having a major impact on the overall gang landscape and any potential threat to public safety”, says Sgt. Brenda Winpenny, CFSEU-BC spokesperson.

The CFSEU-BC would like to thank the Surrey and Langley RCMP detachments as well as the Lower Mainland Integrated Emergency Response Team, for their assistance with this investigation.
