Abbotsford, BC – In September, the Abbotsford Police Department’s Gang and Drug Unit (GDU), which is currently focused on the Townline Hill conflict, entered into a Drug Trafficking investigation involving persons identified as being involved in the current conflict.
Over the past couple of months, a variety of resources were deployed into this large-scale investigation. On November 26, 2015, members of the APD’s Emergency Response Team (ERT), and the APD’s Crime Reduction Unit (CRU) assisted GDU in making three arrests. Two search warrants were also executed, one at a residence located in the 30600 block of Curlew Drive and a further residence located in the 3500 block of Summit Drive.
As a result of this investigation, drugs (Cocaine, Heroin and MDMA), $6,000 cash, two vehicles and drug paraphernalia were seized by police relating to this Drug Trafficking investigation.
Twenty-five-year old Herman SIDHU of Abbotsford has been charged with 13 counts of Trafficking a Controlled Substance.
Twenty-six-year old Bhavdeep DEOL of Abbotsford has been charged with 2 counts of Trafficking a Controlled Substance.
Twenty-seven-year old David ELLIOTT of Abbotsford has been charged with 1 count of Trafficking a Controlled Substance.
