A Vancouver man is facing a long list of firearms-related charges following his arrest late last month.
Vancouver police Tuesday announced the arrest of 34-year-old Derek Stephens. Stephens was arrested on Nov. 29 following a five-month-long investigation, dubbed Project Tactic, by the department’s organized crime section. He is facing 39 firearms-related charges.
In addition to the arrest officers seized guns, more than 1,200 rounds of ammunition, multiple high-capacity magazines, silencers, balaclavas, zap-straps, a Taser and handcuffs.
Stephens was set to make an appearance in court Tuesday afternoon. The case is currently subject to a publication ban, Robillard said, and no more information would be released.
