ON November 24 at 4:20 a.m., a Delta Police Officer pulled over a truck for driving without any lights at 80 Avenue and Scott Road. A second officer attended to assist the first officer. From the second officer’s vantage point, she was able to see a handgun in the truck in plain view.

The driver, Baljit Singh Nijjar, 32, of Surrey, was arrested without incident for possession of a firearm. A search of the truck then located a second gun. Both guns were loaded.

Of concern to the police is that one gun is a “ghost gun.” A ghost gun is a firearm that is produced or partially produced through the manufacturing of some parts using machining and/or 3-D printing, making the gun untraceable.

Nijjar has been charged with four counts of unauthorized possession of a prohibited/restricted firearm, one count of unauthorized possession of a restricted oversized magazine, two counts of occupy a vehicle knowing there was a prohibited/restricted firearm and two counts of possession of a prohibited/restricted firearm without license.

Delta Police said Nijjar is known to police and is believed to be connected to the current BC Gang Conflict. He remains in custody until his next court appearance on December 2.
