A fraud investigation has led to the seizure of firearms and drugs from a residential property in the Cloverdale area of Surrey.

On July 31, 2018, Surrey RCMP began an investigation into an alleged credit card fraud. The initial information received was regarding a purchase made at a local business with a stolen credit card number over the phone. Investigators were able to link the fraud to a residence in Cloverdale.

On August 1, 2018 General Duty along with Community Response Unit (CRU) officers executed a search warrant on the property located in the 5700 block of 176A Street.

The warrant resulted in the seizure of a modified Mossberg 500 tactical shotgun (semi-automatic), two high-capacity prohibited rotary shotgun magazines, a Ruger P90 handgun, ammunition, varying amounts of marijuana, methamphetamine, and prescription drugs, stolen identification and property, and fraudulent documents in varying stages of preparation.

Three people were taken into custody and later released pending further investigation. Anyone with further information is asked to please call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or contact Crime Stoppers if you wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca.
