“It is anticipated the arrest of these individuals and the items seized will significantly disrupt the drug trade in Abbotsford and further improve public safety through the targeting of gang associates within the community,” Staff Sgt. Dan Culbertson of the APD’s criminal investigation branch said in a news release.
Police have urged the public to phone 911 if they see any suspicious activity, be it in a mall parking lot, a restaurant or an isolated area.
