Surrey man facing gun charges
The Surrey Leader is reporting that “a Surrey man is custody facing several charges related to the seizure of a cache of weapons. The 42-year-old was arrested on Aug. 21 at his home in the 10400-block of 140B Street.” Numerous firearms were seized including suppressors and body armor. Ten of the 11 guns seized had their serial numbers removed.
Although the man hasn’t been named yet since charges are pending, the accused, who is currently prohibited from possessing firearms for life, has previous convictions for a variety of property-related crimes, driving offences, drug offences, and firearms offences.
