Weapons and drugs seized from Guildford residence

THE Surrey RCMP Community Response Unit (CRU) recently seized weapons and drugs during a search warrant execution at a residence in Guildford.

This investigation began when Surrey RCMP received a report of suspected drug trafficking on May 18. Surrey RCMP CRU took conduct of the investigation and executed a search warrant on May 28 at a residence in the 15200-block of 105th Avenue.

During the search, officers located a rifle, ammunition, taser, nunchucks, approximately $12,000 cash, and a large quantity of suspected heroin, fentanyl and methamphetamine. In addition, officers seized 13 imitation firearms and other items consistent with drug trafficking.

A man was arrested inside the residence and later released pending further investigation. No charges have been laid at this time.

“A high level of planning and attention goes into the execution of a search warrant with a focus on officer and public safety,” said Staff-Sgt. Mike Deneumoustier, Community Response Unit Commander. “Given the weapons found inside this residence, we’re grateful the warrant was executed in a safe manner and no one was injured.”
