    Eight people from the Calgary area and the Lower Mainland have been arrested and face over 100 charges in a significant organized crime bust announced today by police.

    The Alberta Law Enforcement Response Team said it has seized drugs, guns and cash from a suspected cocaine and marijuana trafficking operation between both provinces. They’ve also used proceeds of crime legislation to seize a $1.5 million home in Rocky View, cash, jewelry and seven vehicles.

    It’s alleged the group was bringing drugs from B.C. for sale in Alberta for several years.

    It’s also alleged they paid people for use of their identities to cover their financial tracks and launder their proceeds of the drug sales.
    “This group is a major player in the local drug trafficking scene,” said Insp. Gerry Francois.

    “By dismantling their organization, I think we’ve had a major impact on the supply of drugs coming into this city. You could say we’ve cut the head off the snake.”

    Parvinder Singh Bagri, 24, of Rocky View and Lower Mainland residents Kalwarn Singh Dhillon, 23, Apraj Singh Bassi, 22, and Keerit Singh Brar, 20, face multiple drug trafficking, firearm, criminal organization and proceeds of crime charges.

    Rajvinder Bagri, 22, Gurdawar Bagri, 50, Jatinder Bagri, 52, all of Rocky View, and Kanwal Gill, 36, of Chestermere face charges of laundering the proceeds of crime.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
