VPD recovers gun, drugs during East Van traffic stop

Vancouver – A suspected East Vancouver dial-a-doper faces multiple charges, after Vancouver Police recovered a gun, ammunition, and drugs during a traffic stop Monday night.

Two VPD constables were conducting patrols near Commercial Drive and East 4th Avenue around 8 p.m. when they spotted an unlicensed driver speaking to another man through the open window of his vehicle.

When the officers stopped to investigate, one of the men tried to walk away and stash a bag inside a second car that was parked nearby. Officers discovered a 9mm pistol, ammunition, and a variety of controlled substances in that man’s possession.

A 27-year-old from East Vancouver was arrested for drugs and weapons possession.
