Wanted gang member found

A gang member wanted for conspiracy to commit murder was found near Kelowna late Wednesday night.

Pashminder Boparai, a 30-year-old Abbotsford resident, had a nationwide warrant out for his arrest.

After tips from the public, Boparai was apprehended and is now in custody. Police wouldn’t provide any more details about where he was located.

The Vancouver Police Department announced in February additional arrests and charges in relation to Taskforce Tourniquet and Project Territory had been made. Boparai and three other men were among the new charges laid.

Project Territory has resulted in the seizure of more than 170 firearms, more than 10 kilograms of fentanyl, 40 kilograms of heroin, methamphetamine and cocaine, and more than $2 million worth of cash, jewelry, and high-end vehicles.

“We would like to thank the public for tips and acknowledge the Kelowna RCMP for their assistance. They were instrumental in helping capture Mr. Bopari,” says Sgt. Jason Robillard.

“We’ll continue to work collaboratively with our partnering agencies to combat gang violence that affects our communities.”

Moeen Khan, 22, of Surrey remains at large and police are encouraging him to turn himself into authorities.
