A huge stash of guns, ammunition and drugs was found in a Langley City townhouse during an RCMP raid Thursday morning.
Heavily armed Emergency Response Team (ERT) members and Langley RCMP Drug Section officers raided a unit in the 5200 block of 203rd Street Thursday morning.
Officers in body armour and carrying rifles, a battering ram, and a chainsaw were spotted approaching a unit in the Riverside Gardens complex at about 10:30 a.m.
Inside, police found 25 firearms, said Sgt. Alexandra Mulvihill, a spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.
The guns included assault rifles, sawed off shotguns, handguns, and antique firearms in a wide variety of calibres.
Police also found ammunition, a silencer, and “a fair amount” of drugs, said Mulvihill.
The cocaine, methamphetamines, heroin, and marijuana were in amounts that suggested trafficking, said Mulvihill.
A 35-year-old man and a 31-year-old woman were arrested on outstanding warrants for several other firearms-related charges.
More charges may be laid as the Langley investigation continues, Mulvihill said.
One man was taken to hospital for a medical issue not related to the police investigation, Mulvihill said.
She said the ERT is often called in for such pre-planned arrests.
