Gurkirat Toor has been acquitted of weapons charges in Abbotsford.

A man who was charged in Abbotsford with pointing a gun at another driver in 2020 has been acquitted of all charges.

Gurkirat Toor, 24, was found not guilty June 14 in Abbotsford provincial court of three charges – possessing a firearm with an altered serial number, occupying a vehicle knowing a firearm was present, and possession of a restricted firearm.

A fourth charge – pointing a firearm – was stayed in April.

Toor was charged following an incident on Oct. 23, 2020 when he was driving a rented Nissan Murano in the area of Townline Road and Southern Drive in west Abbotsford.

Police at the time said Toor allegedly pointed a gun at another car, and the victim drove away.

Police said Toor then lost control of his vehicle as he tried to make a high-speed right turn and crashed into a retaining wall and two parked cars near Upper Maclure Road and Townline Road.

He was arrested at the scene for breaching his bail conditions. Police said his vehicle was searched, and a loaded handgun was located under the seat.

At the time of his arrest, Toor was on bail for two charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking related to a bust in August 2019 that police said was related to the Lower Mainland gang conflict.

At that time, he was among three young men charged after police pulled them over in a vehicle and found $1,500 cash, individually packaged doses of fentanyl and crack cocaine, and cellphones.

Police also seized the vehicle – a 2016 Jeep Wrangler – that they said was being used to deliver drugs.

The fentanyl seized was purple, which would have occurred from the producer using a colouring agent to differentiate their drugs from that of other suppliers.
