Firearms seized by police following investigation into home break-in.

Stolen firearms recovered during routine traffic stop: RCMP

Eleven of 16 firearms stolen from a Chilliwack Lake Road home last month have been recovered, and two suspects arrested in connection with the March 30 break-in.

Eleven of 16 firearms stolen from a Chilliwack Lake Road home last month have been recovered, and two suspects arrested in connection with the March 30 break-in.

Three of the guns were recovered April 8 by two members of the Chilliwack RCMP’s crime reduction unit as they conducted a routine traffic stop at about midnight in the Elkview Road area of Ryder Lake.

A quantity of methamphetamine was also seized and a male and female, both of Chilliwack, were arrested and charged with several drug- and firearm-related offences.

Eight more of the stolen firearms were recovered as the police investigation continued, RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck said.

“It’s a real comfort to know that eleven of these guns have been found and will not hit the streets,” she said.

Anyone with information about the remaining stolen firearms, or any other information regarding the break-in, is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
