One of two men wanted in connection to an alleged drug ring operating out of Chilliwack has been located, according to B.C.’s Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit

Dana Schaper-Kotter has turned himself in to the Chilliwack RCMP and is no longer wanted, CFSEU-BC posted on its website.

Police are still looking for Lucas Thiessen.  Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to contact the Chilliwack RCMP or contact CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Both men were part of a group of five individuals charged this week with a string of weapons and drug charges following a lengthy investigation into an alleged drug trafficking network based in Chilliwack and operating in Northern B.C.

The investigation resulted in the arrests of several people and the seizure of millions of dollars worth of illegal and potentially deadly drugs from several Chilliwack locations.

In February 2015, the CFSEU-BC executed search warrants on two properties in Chilliwack and arrested four males and one female. The search of two residences and three storage lockers resulted in the seizure of eight firearms, prohibited magazines, silencers, and more than $200,000 in cash. Also seized was over $2 million dollars worth of drugs, which included a large quantity of the dangerous drug fentanyl.

In December of 2015, Crown counsel approved charges against three of the men originally arrested in connection to this investigation.

This week federal Crown counsel has approved a total of 50 more criminal charges against five additional men arrested in this investigation.

Charges have been approved against Jordan Anthony Ramos, a 26-year-old from Chilliwack. Ramos is charged with four counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking. He is currently in custody in Grand Prairie, Alberta on unrelated charges.

Charged with four counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking and 12 counts of possession of a prohibited device is 25-year-old Dana Mikael Hendrick Schaper-Kotter, from Chilliwack.

Darcy Horvath, 23 and from Chilliwack, is charged with nine counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking and 12 counts of possession of a prohibited device.

Lucas Benjamin Thiessen, 22 and from from Chilliwack, is charged with four counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking.

Kyle Harrower, 25 and also from Chilliwack, is charged with five counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking.
