Anti-gang units target 10-year-olds amid middle-class gang problems

Anti-gang units target 10-year-olds amid middle-class gang problems SURREY, B.C. — Sgt. Mike Sanchez didn't expect to find himself working in elementary schools as a senior officer with the RCMP's gang enforcement unit in Surrey, B.C. But when he looks around some classrooms, he said there are already signs of kids glorifying what he describes as a "gang lifestyle." They wear clothes mimicking older kids who sell drugs and show no surprise when his team gives its presentation. "When you see a young individual in Grade 7 already looking like that, that's alarming. I never thought we'd be delivering this content to Grade 6s and Grade 7s and that is actually our target now," Sanchez said.

Police believe the shooting was linked to local drug trafficking, which Saul has a history with — both in the Lower Mainland and outside of B.C.

"Saul has been spoken to by investigators and, although his life is in danger, he has provided very limited information to police," Surrey RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Elenore Sturko said in a statement Wednesday.

"As such, Surrey RCMP believes that he has become a risk to public safety."

Saul, who police say is based in New Westminster, escaped death just two weeks earlier during another targeted shooting in Burnaby on Aug. 21.

In that instance, a vehicle was struck just before 5 a.m. in the 7300-block of 14 Avenue.

'Cougar' Reported To Surrey RCMP Was Actually Just A Chunky Housecat

'Cougar' Reported To Surrey RCMP Was Actually Just A Chunky Housecat Police responding to a cougar sighting near a Metro Vancouver elementary school were in for a surprise when they found the big cat was smaller than expected — much smaller. In fact, the supposed 150-pound cougar turned out to be a “large domestic cat.” A woman who lived in the South Surrey neighbourhood emailed Peace Arch News early Tuesday to report that a cat “maybe 150lbs” had walked down the road in front of her neighbours’ house Monday. The sighting was near Semiahmoo Trail Elementary School. Const. Richard Wright confirmed to the Surrey Now-Leader that police were contacted about “either a cougar or a large domestic cat” in the area on Aug. 26.

Several daycares close to the crime scene were locked down following the shooting, and neighbours have been on edge ever since.

“[I’m] sick and tired of it, honestly. This is such a great neighbourhood and these guys, why are they coming here?” asked Shawn Webster, who lives about a block away.

“I don’t even understand it because it’s hard to get out of here, we’re kind of closed in… but I guess they get access to the freeway quick enough and they’re gone.”

Anyone with information helpful to the investigation is asked to contact Surrey RCMP or Crime Stoppers.

The department filed a statement of defence earlier this month in response to a lawsuit from Jason Victor Hernandez, who sued the department and six unnamed officers in B.C. Supreme Court in August. Hernandez claimed he was injured when Vancouver police officers arrested him on Feb. 1, thinking he was their suspect.
