Serious bust on Vancouver Island - update

Cops seized a host of guns, drugs, stolen goods, and cash. A loaded 50-caliber Desert Eagle handgun was found. About 12 kilos of drugs and weapons, including a loaded AR15-style rifle, were seized when multiple police groups carried out search warrants in Langford, Saanich, Victoria and the Malahat.
Also seized were six kilograms of a liquid drug suspected to be GHB. Cops arrested a 25-year-old man for possession of controlled substances for the purposes of trafficking and unauthorized possession of firearms. He was bound by conditions at the time of his arrest for prior charges related to drugs. His bail was revoked and he remains in custody.

The cannon Desert Eagle goes for $1,800 and is guaranteed to stop near anything. The Desert Eagle is a gas-operated, semi-automatic pistol known for chambering the .50 Action Express, the largest centerfire cartridge of any magazine-fed self-loading pistol.
