Surrey RCMP seized a small arsenal of weapons including assault rifles and handguns during a raid last week on a South Surrey home they believe to be tied to the Lower Mainland drug trade.

The Mounties began an investigation in April into street level drug trafficking and weapons offences in Whalley.

The RCMP say the investigation led officers to an associated residence in the 16200 block of 28th Ave. in South Surrey. A man related to the home was arrested on May 18 and found to be in possession of nearly nine grams of methamphetamine, seven grams of fentanyl, $895 cash and a Karambit, curved knife that is a prohibited weapon in Canada.

A search warrant was executed at the home on May 19 and police seized a cache of weapons with ammunition that included a Ranger Silah semi-automatic shotgun, M4 assault rifle, SKS assault rifle, .45-calibre Colt pistol, 9mm Caspian Arms pistol and .32-calibre Llama pistol.

Police also seized 223 grams of fentanyl, 1.7 kg of caffeine and more than $16,000 in cash.

“Surrey RCMP is strategically targeting the people who put our community at risk by engaging in the drug trade and the violence that accompanies it,” said Surrey RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Vanessa Munn.

Four people inside the residence were arrested and later released pending further investigation.

Charges have not yet been filed.
