ABBOTSFORD Police announced on Wednesday that they have arrested Akshay Sachdeva, 18, who is associated to the Lower Mainland conflict, and charged him with four counts of possession for the purposes of trafficking in controlled substances (including fentanyl) as a result of their investigation after they executed a search warrant at his home on June 7.

He was on a recognizance of bail for a May 26 assault charge at the time of this arrest.

Abbotsford Police said that they will continue to investigate and arrest individuals involved in gang crime and drug distribution.

Just last week Abbotsford Police announced that its Gang Task Force arrested 18-year-old Inderdeep Minhas for failure to appear in court on charges connected to three firearms-related weapons offences and for obstructing a police officer. In an unusual move, they released a photo of Minhas being arrested, apparently to send a stern warning to youths involved in gangs and drugs.

Anyone with information about gang-related crime should contact the Abbotsford Police Department at 604-859-5225 or text them at 222973 (abbypd) or call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
