Report of domestic disturbance leads to drug and gun charges

Saleh Mohammed, 22, was arrested for possession of an AK-47 assault rifle and drugs.

Police often say there’s no such thing as a “routine” call, and a series of incidents earlier this month serves at testament to that.

On Nov. 12 at about 6 a.m., Surrey RCMP were called to a report of a domestic disturbance in Guildford.

When police arrived, the suspect had fled the area with a female purportedly confined inside a vehicle.

A short time later, Mounties received a call of a single-vehicle accident at 148 Street and 80B Avenue. The driver was take into police custody and the female, who knew the driver, was returned to her family.

During a search of the vehicle, police found a loaded AK-47 assault rifle, a restricted handgun, and a large amount of a substance, believed to be cocaine and heroin.

Police subsequently learned that two youth who heard the crash went to offer assistance. They were allegedly given a fully loaded firearm and asked to hide it.

The two youth took the gun home and gave it to their father, who in turn called police.

Saleh Mohammed, 22, has now been charged with 15 offences, including forcible confinement, uttering threats toward police, possession of a prohibited weapon, possession of a restricted weapon, careless use of a firearm with ammunition, possession of a prohibited device and possession for the purposes of trafficking.

He remains in custody and is scheduled to make his next court appearance on Nov. 25.

“The arrest of this individual is significant not only in disrupting the activities of those involved in the local drug trade, but also removing such dangerous weapons off our streets,” said Surrey RCMP Sgt. Paul Hayes. “These criminals have a careless disregard for public safety and our detachment and community will not tolerate their actions.”

Anyone with more information about this incident is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca
