Complaint about B.C. public pot smokers leads Mounties to gun, drugs, cash

LANGLEY, B.C. — Mounties say officers seized a stolen handgun, other weapons, cash and drugs after a complaint about public pot smokers in Langley, B.C.

RCMP say they'll be recommending charges against the males aged 17, 20 and 23, who are all from neighbouring Surrey.

Police say officers responded to a report of males smoking pot on the street Aug. 26, arrested the suspects and searched their vehicle.

Officers seized a loaded .45 handgun allegedly stolen from Calgary, brass knuckles with a built-in stun gun and a switchblade.

They say officers also seized $4,000 in cash, more than 100 packages each of suspected heroin and crack, as well as drugs believed to be crystal meth and powder cocaine.

The three males have been released from custody, and police say they are continuing their investigation.
