ILLEGAL drugs, cash and a vehicle were seized after officers from the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit – British Columbia (CFSEU-BC) conducted a vehicle stop on the afternoon of April 27 in Burnaby.
CFSEU-BC Uniform Gang Enforcement Team (UGET) members were conducting regular proactive enforcement patrols when their attention was drawn to a black Porsche Cayenne. They conducted a vehicle stop as the vehicle pulled into a parking spot in the area of Grandview Highway and Boundary Road.
The UGET discovered the male driver was prohibited from driving and placed him under arrest. A search of the male and vehicle subsequent to the arrest located a number of items, including an amount of suspected illegal drugs, believed to be methamphetamine and fentanyl, bundles of cash and a can of bear spray.
The Porsche Cayenne was seized as offence-related property. The investigation continues into a number of drug and Criminal Code-related offences.
“This is yet another example of our UGET officers locating potentially deadly drugs within our community and disrupting criminal activity which poses a high risk to public safety,” said CFSEU-BC Sgt. Brenda Winpenny. “Seizing money found with drugs and the vehicles used to transport those drugs is a primary tool to hamper criminal groups seeking to profit from preying upon vulnerable members of our communities.
