Three Surrey men face 18 charges related to local drug turf conflict

SURREY/DELTA — Three Surrey men are facing 18 charges related to a violent drug turf war in Surrey and Delta last summer.

The Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of B.C., Surrey RCMP Drug Section and the Delta Police investigated alleged criminal activities of a “drug trafficking group” which had links to the conflict.

Last April police launched a three-month investigation into a dial-a-dope line, searched two Surrey residences and seized 21.46 grams of cocaine, 4.79 grams of heroin, less than a gram of crystal methamphetamine, $7,085 in Canadian cash and seven vehicles alleged to have been used in drug trafficking.

Chaten Singh Dhindsa, 20, of Surrey has been charged with 10 counts of trafficking and one count of possession for the purpose of trafficking. Jordan Singh Rana, 21, of Surrey has been charged with five counts of trafficking and one count of obstructing a police officer and Davjit Singh Randhawa, 32, has been charged with one count of trafficking.

None are in custody, pending their court dates.

To date, 28 people face 194 charges for 51 separate offences related to the local drug conflict.
