Corey Perkins pulls long time on Drugs, Weapons

Abbotsford man Corey Perkins, 31, has been sentenced to 12 years in prison on 10 drug and weapons charges. He was sentenced Monday in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver on charges of possession of cocaine and fentanyl for the purpose of trafficking and for illegal possession of firearms.

With credit for time served, Perkins will serve another eight years and 10 months in prison. Perkins originally faced 39 charges in the case, but they were whittled down to 10 by the time of his trial.
Perkins was arrested while taking his Mercedes through a car wash. Among the items found in the vehicle were fentanyl and a derivative of fentanyl, $5,000 in $20 bills and a set of keys to a storage locker.

The storage locker was searched by police, who found 10 guns, including a CZ75 semi-automatic handgun, a Bersa .380 Thunder, a .357 Magnum, a K-Tel SU16F assault rifle and a Sterling SMB MK4 9 mm rifle.
