  • Partial brick of suspected cocaine seized by Surrey Gang Enforcement Team

The Surrey Gang Enforcement Team has seized a partial brick of suspected cocaine as part of on-going targeted gang enforcement in Surrey.

On May 9, 2021 at 11:27 p.m., Surrey Gang Enforcement Team (SGET) attempted to stop a speeding vehicle in the area of 108 Avenue and 152 Street. The vehicle failed to stop and fled from police at high rate of speed. Other SGET units in the area were able to get ahead of the fleeing vehicle and blocked the lanes of travel. With no route of escape, the suspect vehicle stopped and the driver was arrested.

Further investigation led to seizure of a partial brick of suspected cocaine, weighing 247 grams. This amount of cocaine when packaged for streel level sale is 1,225 doses, the equivalent of 25 busloads of people.

In addition to the suspected drugs, the vehicle, multiple cell phones, $160 in cash, and a knife were seized as offence related property. The man, a 27-year-old Coquitlam resident was released at scene. Charges have not yet been laid, as the investigation is ongoing.

During the month of April, SGET conducted 35 curfew checks of individuals that are currently involved in lower mainland gang conflict, 65 Outlaw motor motorcycle clubhouse checks, and 24 drug investigations that resulted in seizure of two firearms and four vehicles.
