A longtime associate of the Dhak crime group faces numerous criminal charges after allegedly breaching his bail conditions.

Ryan Gregory Milliard, 29, was arrested for breach of recognizance on March 20, and a search warrant was issued for a residence on Carnarvon Street in New Westminster even though Milliard’s bail conditions required him to live in Surrey.

During the search investigators allegedly found cocaine, marijuana, two loaded pistols, and about $120,000 in cash.

“This arrest will have a significant impact on the Dhak crime group and will assist greatly in the disruption of their ongoing criminal activity,” said Sgt. Lindsey Houghton of the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of British Columbia. “This is what CFSEU-BC does best.

“Our focus is always those gang members who commit violence to further their criminal enterprises. We keep track of these people throughout the province because public safety is our primary goal.”

Among the potential charges Milliard faces are possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, possession of a prohibited or restricted weapon, possession of a prohibited weapon without a licence, and possession of a firearm contrary to order.

Milliard has been remanded in custody and is expected to appear in New Westminster court on Wednesday.

Milliard was originally charged with conspiracy as part of the Operation Gateway drug investigation, which resulted in nine arrests and the seizure of marijuana plants and many kilograms of drugs.

The leader of the Dhak crime gang, Sukh Dhak, was shot and killed last November in a brazen daytime execution at the Executive Hotel in Burnaby.
