More charges laid in connection with Surrey/Delta drug turf war

Three men charge in relation to conflict last summer that plagued local neighbourhood.

Three Surrey men are facing a combined 18 charges in connection to a violent drug dispute that brought mayhem to Surrey and Delta last summer.

Last April, the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of B.C. (CFSEU-BC), Surrey RCMP and Delta Police began investigating a dial-a-dope drug line associated to individuals involved in the Surrey/Delta conflict.

After a three-month investigation, two search warrants were executed on Surrey residences. A search turned up more than 21 grams of cocaine, nearly 5 grams of heroin, $7,000 cash and seven vehicles used in drug trafficking.

Chaten Singh Dhindsa, 20, is charged with 10 counts of trafficking and one count of possession for the purpose of trafficking. Jordan Singh Rana, 21, is charged with five counts of trafficking and one of obstructing a police officer, while 32-year-old Davjit Singh Randhawa faces one count of trafficking.

All three men have since been released from custody, under court conditions.

To date, the CFSEU-BC says 28 people directly related to the conflict face 194 charges.

Beginning last spring, brazen street shootings became a regular occurrence in Surrey and Delta. Police at the time determined two groups were competing over drug turf, with some players being shot (but not killed) and subsequently not cooperating with police, or even taunting investigators.

Delta’s Arman Dhatt was among those arrested and charged and was sentenced in December to four years in jail for a string of drug and firearm offences.
