Drugs, cash, and, Alfa Romeo Stelvio seized by Surrey Gang Enforcement Team

Darpan News Desk Surrey RCMP, 25 Feb, 2021
  • Drugs, cash, and, Alfa Romeo Stelvio seized by Surrey Gang Enforcement Team

Shortly after midnight on February 20, 2021, SGET officers were conducting pro-active enforcement in the area of 121A Street and 85A Avenue, the location of a recent targeted gang shooting.

The officers observed a suspicious vehicle and initiated a traffic stop under the motor vehicle act. During their initial interactions, officers observed signs of illegal drug possession and arrested the driver, a 24-year-old woman.

Further investigation led police to discover multiple pre-packaged baggies of suspected cocaine, meth, crack cocaine, and $1320 cash. The woman was subsequently arrested for possession for the purpose of trafficking and released from custody while the investigation continues.

The Alfa Romeo has been seized as offense related property, pending investigation. Police can seize offence-related property under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. Property used to commit crimes, including vehicles used for drug trafficking, can be seized as offence-related property and may be subject to forfeiture by the courts upon conviction.

Since January, additional officers of the Surrey Gang Enforcement Team were deployed across the city, increasing the size of teams and reach of officers specialized in gang disruption.

These officers have been in direct contact with gang members and affiliates in Surrey, through increased curfew checks as well as continued targeted enforcement and vehicle interdictions. Between January 24, and February 21, 2021 SGET completed the following:

  • 93 establishment checks for the Inadmissible Patrons Program (IPP)
  • 56 curfew checks of LMDGC participants currently living in Surrey with 1 resulting in a charge for breaching conditions
  • 30 Outlaw Motorcycle Gang clubhouse checks
  • 12 drug investigations that resulted in the seizure of seven vehicles

SGET continues to liaise with other LMD Gang Units to ensure information gathered during enforcement efforts is shared and passed on to various units with active LMDGC investigations.
