Abbotsford Police seize drugs and weapons from home

Kerry Douglas Russell, 31, now charged after bust at home on Old Clayburn Road

These items were seized by Abbotsford Police during a bust on July 3.

A 31-year-old man has been charged after police raided an Abbotsford home on Tuesday night and seized drugs and weapons.

Kerry Douglas Russell is charged with three counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking. Const. Ian MacDonald said Russell was also arrested on outstanding weapons and drug warrants issued by police in New Westminster and Mission.

Weapons charges in Tuesday’s bust are being considered.

Officers executed a search warrant at about 8:15 p.m. in the 3100 block of Old Clayburn Road. Upon arrival, Russell allegedly fled on foot from the property but was quickly apprehended.

He and a 26-year-old female, who was present on the property, were arrested.

Police seized two rifles, an imitation handgun, $8,100 cash, 22 grams of cocaine, 350 grams of bulk and packaged marijuana, and 41 ecstasy pills.

The bust involved the Abbotsford Police’s drug enforcement unit assisted by the gang suppression unit and patrol division officers.

MacDonald said a seizure of this nature is usually indicative of someone who is involved in doling out product to dealers in a dial-a-dope operation.

He said Russell has had about 30 previous interactions with police.

He has only one prior conviction – for possession of a controlled substance in Abbotsford in 2004 – under the name “Kerry Russell,” but he has a string of charges and convictions under various aliases he uses, according to the provincial court database.

These offences occurred mainly in Abbotsford, Mission and Chilliwack. They include convictions for possession for the purpose of trafficking, possession of counterfeit money, possession of a controlled substance, fleeing from police, using a stolen credit card, and breaching his bail and probation conditions.
