Deol pleaded guilty to the two counts of trafficking a controlled substance that he had been charged with. His sentencing hearing takes place on January 15 in Chilliwack.
Back in November 2015, Abbotsford Police said in a news release that in September 2015, the Abbotsford Police Department’s Gang and Drug Unit (GDU), which was focused on the Townline Hill conflict at the time, entered into a drug trafficking investigation involving persons identified as being involved in this conflict.
It said: “Over the past couple of months, a variety of resources were deployed into this large-scale investigation. On [November 26, 2015], members of the APD’s Emergency Response Team (ERT), and the APD’s Crime Reduction Unit (CRU) assisted GDU in making three arrests. Two search warrants were also executed, one at a residence located in the 30600-block of Curlew Drive and a further residence located in the 3500-block of Summit Drive.
“As a result of this investigation, drugs (cocaine, heroin and MDMA), $6,000 cash, two vehicles and drug paraphernalia were seized by police.”
Police also arrested another male, but the charge against him was later dropped.
