Coquitlam Crime Family Busted

CBC is reporting that "Police say a 17-month investigation has broken up a Coquitlam crime ring that trafficked fentanyl and "relied heavily on family ties." Coquitlam RCMP said in a statement their ENightlife investigation netted 59 charges against 11 people. Their ages range from a 19-year-old, Marcus Leach, who is charged with five gun offences and possession of proceeds of crime; to 69-year-old Karen Leach, who is charged with five firearms-related offences and possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking."

"Karen Leach is Marcus Leach's grandmother, according to police. Andrew Leach — Karen's son and Marcus' uncle — is accused of being the ringleader of the operation. He faces 20 charges including drugs and firearms-related offences."

Andrew Leach received a four year sentence for a fatal stabbing in Maple Ridge. In 2011 Kim Bolan reported that the fatal stabbing occurred when Andrew Leach got in a argument with someone on their way to a Hells Angels after hours club. Leach was originally charged with second-degree murder but later pleaded guilty to manslaughter.

Global is reporting that the other accused in the recent Coquitlam case are: Merissa Demosten, 24; Arghavan Ebrahimi, 25; Golareh-Sadat Ehtesham-Far, 25; Morvarid Hashemi, 25; Zach Morgan Ronald Joyce, 25 and Mariah Kemp, 26 as well as a father and son from Langley. I am keenly interested in hearing who the father and son from Langley are.


  1. I strongly believe that this group was taken down, by the RCMP, to stop the competition to the huge HA gangs Crime Operation

    1. That was my first impression but I'm waiting to hear who the Langley father and son are.

  2. this might make a good t.v. series. like how long was this "family" in operation. You'd think the RCMP might have gotten around to this before now. Oh, right Poulson had them chasing "terrorists".
