In mid-June, Corporal Elenore Sturko said the charges arise from an investigation launched in September 2018 focusing on alleged drug dealing in Surrey and Delta, “related to a group of individuals associated to those involved in the Lower Mainland gang conflict.”

Also facing charges related to drug trafficking are 51-year-old Jasbir Singh Khabra of Surrey (11 charges), Matthew Ramone Mann, 19, of Delta (eight charges), Gurdeep Singh Bains, 19, of Delta (six charges), and Martin Djunga, 18, of Surrey (three charges).

“The majority of these charges were in relation to the trafficking of a controlled substance specifically fentanyl and cocaine,” Sturko said.

Anyone with further information on this individual and his alleged crimes, who hasn’t already contacted police, is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502. Or, to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or go to solvecrime.ca.
