Imagine the sheriff’s officers surprise when they showed up at a Scarborough basement apartment on Jan. 29 to serve an eviction notice and saw a rifle in plain view.
They called police who, after seeing and securing the fully loaded weapon, secured a warrant to search the apartment.
The 42 Division Major Crime Unit officers also located a .22 calibre rifle with a chopped stock, a large quantity of ammunition, cocaine, marijuana and heroin and 12,000 ecstasy pills with a street value of $200,000.
The next day while investigating a break and enter nearby, officers stopped a man for questioning.
It turned out that he was the resident of the apartment building where the guns and illegal drugs were found.
“He had nothing to do with the break and enters, but he was the person we were looking for because we had already determined his identity, vehicle and license plate information,” said Const. Kevin Rasmussen
Jackie Fung, faces multiple guns and drug charges.
