KAMLOOPS - Two Kamloops men have been arrested and charged in connection with several counts of firearms-related offences, and RCMP believe they’re linked to a gang originating in the Lower Mainland.
“The Wolfpack” has established a faction in Kamloops, bringing illicit drugs, firearms and violence with them.
On May 28, Kamloops RCMP obtained and successfully executed a search warrant for a residence in Surrey.
They found various drugs including Fentanyl, Oxycodone, cocaine and marijuana. Police also seized a long rifle and approximately $25,000.
Michael Ross, 27, was arrested at the residence and has been charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking and possessing a firearm when prohibited.
Just two days before that, May 26, police arrested Christopher Pace and Bruce Davis in Kamloops. RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jodi Shelki says police believe they are linked to The Wolfpack.
They both face charges for possessing a firearm without licence or registration.
According to court documents, Davis was found with a .45 calibre handgun, .25 calibre handgun and a Tec 9 automatic.
Both accused are scheduled to appear in Kamloops court this week.
