Police arrest second Abbotsford teen in Lower Mainland gang conflict

BY STEPHANIE IP

Abbotsford police seized a number of drugs and have arrested an 18-year-old man in relation to the ongoing gang conflict throughout the Lower Mainland.

A search warrant was executed June 7 at the home of Akshay Sachdeva, 18. During the search, police found several controlled substances, including Fentanyl.

Police said Sachdeva had been identified as being linked to the Lower Mainland gang conflict that first started as a drug turf war in the Townline Hill neighbourhood of Abbotsford. The investigation has since been expanded and now includes officers and suspects from other jurisdictions.

Sachdeva has since been charged with four counts of possession for the purposes of trafficking in controlled substances. At the time of his arrest, he had been released on conditions relating to a May 2017 assault charge.

News of the arrest was shared exactly a week after Abbotsford police arrested another teen related to the same ongoing conflict.

Inderdeep Minhas, 18, was arrested June 14 after he failed to appear in court on three gun-related charges.

Abbotsford police continue to investigate and ask anyone with information about the conflict to call 604-859-5225 or text 222973 (abbypd). Those who wish to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Anyone who needs help or advice relating to gang involvement can email helpyouth@abbypd.ca or call 604-864-4777.
