Arrest Warrants Issued For Men Involved In BC Drug Trafficking Ring

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Two men are wanted after allegedly being involved in a drug trafficking ring that spans across B.C.

In a release from the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit,  21-year old Le Hoang-Duy Vo and 27-year old Andrew Vithna Va each face a charge of possession for the purpose of trafficking.

Investigators have said the two men were identified after police searched a vehicle near Fort St. John in 2015. Police seized more than 3 kilograms of powdered and crack cocaine, along with $138,000.

The findings came after a search of 5 Chilliwack homes in February of 2015 that led to drug seizures in the value of more than $2-million. They also found guns and cash.

In February 2016 it was announced that more than 50 charges were laid against 5 men from Chilliwack. They are  accused of operating a Fraser Valley-based crime cell that trafficked drugs primarily in Northern B.C.
