Two North Delta residents have been arrested and charged with drug trafficking following a months-long investigation by the New West Police Department.

Elliot Eriq Bains, 19, and Devin Sallas Bains, 21, were both arrested on April 5, 2018, after the New West Police street crime unit and the Lower Mainland Emergency Response Team executed the search warrant. Local residents reported seeing a large police presence in the area, which is close to Brooke Elementary School.

Police seized two vehicles from the residence, as well cocaine, oxycodone, marijuana, a significant amount cash and two prohibited handguns. The drugs from the seizure had an estimated street value of approximately $6,000.

Elliot and Devin Bains have been charged with a number offences, including the possession and trafficking of a number of drugs, possession of two semi-automatic handguns. Devin Bains has also been charged with the possession without a license and improper storing of a restricted revolver handgun.

Both Elliot and Devin Bains were held arrested without incident and were held in-custody to appear in court.
