Surrey RCMP say arrests are pending in connection with a gun and drug seizure from a home in the Guildford area last month.

RCMP began an investigation and later obtained a search warrant after neighbours reported the residence in the 8400 block of 154th Street as a “problem property.”

During the Feb. 13 search, police located and seized 50,000 doses of suspected methamphetamine along with large quantities of suspected heroin, marijuana and cocaine.

Surrey RCMP seized a significant amount of drugs and a loaded handgun at a Guildford home recognized by the neighbourhood as a problem property.

Police also seized more than 100 suspected stolen items including a loaded semi-automatic Walther PPK pistol that was believed to have been stolen during a residential break and enter in Chilliwack.

“We’re very thankful for the community’s assistance on this file,” said RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann. “Residents in this neighbourhood were keenly aware of what was going on in the immediate area and the investigation certainly benefited from their observations. The Surrey RCMP and the community it serves can improve the safety and livability for all residents when they work together to solve crime.”

Arrests are expected at a later date.

“Officers are continuing the investigation while processing and analyzing all of the exhibits seized,” Schumann said.
