Abbotsford drug trafficker sentenced to almost 2 years

Bhavdeep Deol was among 3 arrested in 2015 investigation

An Abbotsford man has been sentenced to 21 months in prison after previously pleading guilty to two drug-trafficking charges.

Bhavdeep Deol, 30, was sentenced Oct. 8 in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster, where a third charge – possession for the purpose of trafficking – was stayed.

He also received a 10-year weapons ban.

Deol was among three people arrested and charged in November 2015 after search warrants were executed at homes on Curlew Drive and Summit Drive in Abbotsford.

At the time, police said the arrests were part of the Townline Hill conflict. (They later began referring to it as the more wide-ranging Lower Mainland gang conflict.)

Police seized two pounds of MDMA (ecstasy), 26 ounces of cocaine and a small amount of heroin from the two homes. They said the drugs had an estimated street value of $70,000.

Investigators also seized drug paraphernalia, $6,000 cash and two vehicles.

Deol’s co-accused Herman Sidhu, 28, was sentenced in late August to a 21-month jail term for three counts of drug trafficking, to which he pleaded guilty. Ten other counts of the same charge were stayed.

Sidhu was sentenced after he was unsuccessful in his bid earlier this year to have his guilty pleas overturned.

Charges were stayed early in the case against David Elliott, the third man arrested at the same time as Sidhu and Deol.
