Update on Project Rolling Thunder - Residential Property Seized
In November 2020, the Delta Police Department (DPD) Crime Reduction Unit (CRU) embarked on a large-scale drug investigation in Delta and Richmond. Project Rolling Thunder resulted in the recommendation of criminal charges against multiple people. The criminal process is ongoing with a publication ban in place and the DPD can make no further comment on the criminal matter.
DPD investigators also referred the matter to the Civil Forfeiture Office (CFO) which seized a residential property as proceeds of crime. The Supreme Court approved the seizure by the CFO, deeming the residence as offence-related property.
On September 25th, 2023, 5282 Williams Ave, Delta, with an appraised value of $2.133 million, was transferred to the Province of British Columbia.
Chief Constable Neil Dubord stated, “The seizure of this property is an example of the dedication of our investigators to utilize all lawful means to hold those involved in high-level criminal activity accountable through proper investigations and referrals to agencies such as CFO.”
