LANGLEY, B.C. - Drug charges have been laid against two Langley, B.C., men who are alleged senior members of the so-called 856 gang.

The province's anti-gang unit says 48-year-old Leonard Pelletier and 26-year-old Jason Wallace were among three men who were arrested last July.

Pelletier has been charged with five counts of drug trafficking and one count of resisting or obstructing a peace officer.

Wallace has been charged with six counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.

Following the arrests, the agency said drugs totalling nearly $400,000 had been seized from an apartment.

Pelletier and Wallace are scheduled to make a court appearance in Surrey on July 15.
