Guns, drugs, bullets, body armour: Two arrested in Langley

An assault rifle and ammunition are seen after police seized a large amount of weapons from a farmhouse in Langley, B.C. they believe was being used by gang members.

A man and woman are under investigation by gang police after a large seizure of guns and drugs at a Langley home Thursday.

In a news release, Sgt. Brenda Winpenny said the duo was arrested at a home in the 20400-block of 78th Avenue after fleeing from police.

The release said officers with CFSEU-BC’s Uniform Gang Enforcement Team encountered the car at 201A St. and 56th Avenue and noticed the license plates did not match the car.

“When UGET officers attempted to stop the vehicle, it fled,” said police.

They were able to follow the car using help from police dogs and a helicopter.

“Officers seized several firearms, ammunition, body armour and quantities of what is believed to be fentanyl and cocaine. The investigation into this incident is ongoing,” the release said.

“This is yet another example of a UGET initiated investigation taking dangerous weapons and drugs off our streets.This incident highlights the cooperative and coordinated response between units such as the integrated police dog services team and RCMP Air Services,” says Superintendent Duncan Pound, Operations Officer for CFSEU-BC.
