NRI Bhupinder Jatana is facing multiple weapon and firearm charges and one count of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.The Abbotsford Police Department has shut down a home in Abbotsford which is believed have been operating as a distribution centre for street-level drug trafficking in the city

Members of the Municipal Integrated Emergency Response Team (MIERT) and the Abbotsford Drug Squad served the search warrant yesterday afternoon after a several week investigation into the activites of a home located in the 33500 block of Rainbow Ave. Once inside, police located a male sleeping in a bedroom of the house with a loaded 9 mm handgun under his pillow. He was taken into custody without incident.

In addition to locating an estimated $10,000 cash and a variety of drug paraphernalia police seized the following:

- 4 handguns loaded or with loaded magazines next to them
- 2 machine guns with ammunition
- 2 silencers
- 2 rifles
- 1/2 kg of cocaine
- a variety of gun parts for other automatic weapons
- ammunition
- several high capacity magazines
- balaclavas
- tazer and cartridges
- evidence of a grow operation
- 1/4 lb of marijuana
- body armor

The weapons seized are dangerous and capable of inflicting serious harm. This weaponry highlights some of the firepower police are facing more and more often. Given the amount of drugs, cash and weapons police believe this operation is connected to a larger network of organized crime operating in Abbotsford- a group police are familiar with.
