A loaded sawed-off shotgun seized by Surrey RCMP’s Gang Enforcement Team, in photo sent to media.

UPDATED: Loaded shotgun seized from Guildford home

Gang Enforcement Team executed a search warrant in 14800-block of 107A Ave.

UPDATED: Surrey RCMP said the initial release was incorrect and it was not a “sawed-off” shotgun.

Surrey Mounties say they seized a loaded shotgun, along with “paraphernalia consistent with drug trafficking,” after searching a residence in Guildford.

The department’s Gang Enforcement Team executed a warrant last Wednesday (Jan. 29) in the 14800-block of 107A Ave., across the street from Holly Park, as part of an investigation related to unlawful weapons possession.

During the investigation police found and seized “small amounts of suspected narcotics, along with drug processing and packaging materials consistent with drug trafficking,” Surrey RCMP said in a media release Wednesday morning (Feb. 5). “An 18-year-old Surrey man, was arrested at the residence and later released.”

Police initially said it was a “sawed-off” shotgun, but after several people contacted Surrey RCMP, Corporal Elenore Sturko said the original release was incorrect and it was not sawed off.

The gang team is investigating, and no charges have been laid.
