VIDEO: Police bust fentanyl operation in Abbotsford

Man, 22, arrested after drugs, cash and ammunition found

A bust by Abbotsford Police on Wednesday evening uncovered an alleged fentanyl-processing operation.

The operation was revealed when the drug enforcement unit executed a search warrant at a residence in the 32000 block of Golden Avenue.

Sgt. Judy Bird said police seized a large quantity of drugs – believed to be fentanyl – in addition to approximately $1,000 cash and firearm magazines and ammunition.

She said a search of the home and associated vehicles is continuing, and officers with the forensic identification section are continuing to collect forensic and video evidence.

Sgt. Monty McInees of the APD drug enforcement unit said the investigation continues to target associates involved in gang violence and/or drug trafficking, and is specifically directed at disrupting the distribution of fentanyl.

“Our intention is to focus on these individuals and their actions, which pose a significant risk to our community,” he said.

A 22-year-old Abbotsford man was arrested. He cannot be named until charges are formally laid.

The patrol section, emergency response team, gang task force and crime reduction unit all assisted the drug enforcement unit in the execution of the warrant.

The Abbotsford Police Department has made several arrests in recent weeks of young men they say are linked to the Lower Mainland Gang conflict:

Akshay Sachdeva, 18, on June 7;

Inderdeep Minhas, 18, on June 14;

– a 17-year-old (who can’t be named due to provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act) on June 27; and

Jonathan Flores, 18, and Cody McClain, 21, also on June 27.
