Police seized an Uzi semi-automatic weapon in Chilliwack on Tuesday

A man believed to have connections with the Duhre Group is facing several drug and weapons charges after police executed a search warrant in Chilliwack on Tuesday night.

Police seized seven firearms, ammunition, drugs and cash from a residence in the 47000 block of Brewster Place.

The Abbotsford Police Department’s gang suppression and drug enforcement units were involved in the search and seizure, along with the RCMP Lower Mainland Emergency Response Team and Chilliwack RCMP.

Among the firearms seized was an Uzi semi-automatic gun. Also found were high-capacity magazines, an extendable metal baton, more than 2,400 founds of ammunition, thousands of dollars in cash, and drugs – OxyCodone, ecstasy, heroin and cocaine.

The home was vacant at the time, but a 32-year-old man associated with the residence was arrested at about 6 p.m. when he attempted to drive past. Close to a pound of methamphetamine was located in his vehicle.

Const. Ian MacDonald said Abbotsford Police were involved in the Chilliwack arrest because an investigation into the suspect’s activities had already begun in this community.

“We knew that he had connections to that residence (in Chilliwack) but, historically, we’re dealing with someone who has resided in Abbotsford,” he said.

The man, whose name has not yet been released, is known to police. MacDonald said at least one other person connected to the home is under investigation and could face charges.

MacDonald said the arrest attests to the solid work being done by the gang suppression unit, and other police detachments in the Lower Mainland in identifying and disrupting gang activity.

The Abbotsford Police have previously identified the Duhre Group as the dominant gang operating in the city.
