A traffic stop by the Surrey Gang Enforcement Team (SGET) has led to the arrest of a man with gang connections and the seizure of a loaded handgun.

On June 29, 2021 at 10:20 pm, SGET officers conducted a traffic stop under the BC Motor Vehicle Act (MVA) with a rental vehicle in the area of 6500-block of 152 Street. During their interaction with the driver, officers noted signs of alcohol impairment, and arrested him. During a further investigation of the vehicle, officers located a loaded handgun, gloves, and an empty jerrycan inside the vehicle.
