Investigation targets Brother’s Keepers gang activities

Drugs and weapons associated to the Brother’s Keepers gang were seized, and arrests were made following a recent Delta Police Drug Section investigation.

On Friday February 15th 2019 the DPD Drug Section executed a search warrant on a residence in Surrey that had been the target of a drug trafficking investigation associated to the Brother’s Keepers gang / group.

As a result of the search warrant a significant quantity of drugs packaged for sale, including a suspected bulk quantity of Fentanyl, was located.  Investigators also recovered a loaded firearm, replica restricted firearm and two bullet proof vests.  Three persons located inside the residence were arrested without incident and later released from custody pending charge approval by Crown Counsel.

“This seizure highlights the inherent dangers and violence associated to drug trafficking,” says Staff Sergeant Heath Newton, who headed up the investigation, dubbed Project Infinity.  “This investigation is also an example of the ongoing efforts by police to stem the opioid crisis and the gang crime gripping the Lower Mainland and the province at large.”

DPD investigators will be forwarding evidence from this multi-month investigation to Crown Counsel seeking charge approval on multiple members and associates of the Brothers Keepers gang.

The DPD would like to thank the RCMP LMD Emergency Response Team and members of the CFSEU Uniformed Gang Enforcement Team for their assistance in the execution of the Search Warrant.
