The province is suing to have a $1.83-million Langley property forfeited, alleging it has been used to produce drugs and launder money.

In a B.C. Civil Forfeiture Office suit filed in B.C. Supreme Court on Oct. 29, named are a numbered company that owns the property, 0671262 B.C. Ltd., and Milan Pocuca, the company’s sole director and “controlling mind.”

Also named are A.D. Logging Ltd., Donna Lynn Ayres and Greyfriars Mortgage (2012) Ltd., all of whom hold mortgages on the property.
