RCMP in 100 Mile House, Clinton and Langley appreciate the assistance of the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit (CFSEU) North District and Real Time Intelligence Centre (RTIC) after a recent joint investigation resulted in multiple charges against a number of people.

Police were able to recover an estimated $90,000 in stolen property.

Several stolen firearms have been recovered.

Throughout the month of July, Lone Butte, Clinton and Langley businesses were plagued with break-and-enters where substantial amounts of property was stolen.

Investigators in Langley’s Street Enforcement Unit (SEU) located a suspect vehicle at a residence in the Aldergrove area on July 26.

With the assistance of the Lower Mainland Emergency Response Team, a search warrant was executed at the residence. SEU officers found much more than they expected – stolen firearms, sporting goods, sport supplements, automotive equipment, three dirt bikes, clothing and a prohibited Taser disguised as a cell phone. The stolen property was from numerous B&E and thefts throughout Langley, Surrey and 100 Mile House.

Arrested at the Langley residence were Cody John Ball, 27, and Nicole Devon Leigh Poulson, 23, of Langley.

Both are each charged with three counts of break-and-enter and possession of a prohibited firearm. Poulson was charged with an additional two counts of possession of a prohibited firearm

Ball will also face one count of possession of stolen property.

Both are scheduled to re-appear in Surrey Court on Oct. 14. Cody Ball remains in custody and Poulson has been released with a number of strict conditions.

Further investigation after the Langley search led SEU investigators to apply for a second search warrant for a property on Kelly Lake Road in Clinton. Once granted, the warrant was executed by members of Clinton and 100 Mile House RCMP Detachments and CFSEU-BC North District on July 29.

Twenty-seven firearms stolen from the Lone Butte break-and-enter were recovered, as well as numerous stolen optical devices, various boxes of ammunition, and 18 additional firearms not related to the break-in.

Officers arrested Christopher Michael Hendricks, 24, of Clinton. He has been released from custody and will also re-appear in Surrey Provincial Court on Oct. 14. Hendricks is charged with two counts of break-and-enter and possession of stolen property over $5,000.

Additionally, charges for break-and-enter, two counts of possession of a prohibited firearm and two counts of possession of stolen property have now been approved against Charles Ball, 22, of Langley and Dallas Ball, 23, of Langley.

Charles Ball faces a third count of possession of a prohibited Firearm.

Warrants of arrest have been issued for both Charles and Dallas Ball.
