An Abbotsford gangster, charged in a massive gang investigation and wanted on a nationwide warrant, has been arrested in Kelowna.
Pashminder Boparai, 30, was located by RCMP officers following tips from the public, Vancouver police said Thursday.
Boparai was one of more than 35 suspects charged with gang-related crimes in relation to a multi-agency investigation in Metro Vancouver that spanned more than 18 months. Taskforce Tourniquet was formed in March 2017 in response to increasing gang violence.
Boparai has been accused of conspiracy to commit murder. Two men from Ottawa, Mustapha Ali, 28, and Nobin Malonga-Massamba, 23, have been charged in connection to the same incident. Moeen Khan, 22, of Surrey, is wanted on the case as well but remains at large.
Anyone who has information is asked to call 911 or Crime Stoppers.
