Vancouver: Randy Norman Per, 42, and Tenny Guon Lim, 34, are charged with Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking.

Both Randy and Tenny were arrested on May 22, 2014 by coordinated resources from the RCMP Federal Serious and Organized Crime (FSOC), the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and the Vancouver Police Department (VPD) for Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking. 35 kilograms of heroin seized during the arrests concealed within the shipped goods.

Per has been released while Lim remains in custody.

The arrests resulted from an 18 month criminal investigation with important contributions from all agencies. The investigation focused on allegations that an individual or individuals were involved in the movement of suspected contraband from South Asia into Canada, via the Vancouver International Airport.

This is a significant seizure not only because it is the largest heroin seizure in the CBSA Pacific Region’s recent history, but also because an organized internal conspiracy has been disrupted.

The investigation remains active and on-going. The two accused are scheduled to make their next court appearance on July 8, 2014 in Richmond.
