On April 28 a group effort from covert surveillance officers from the drug section of the Kelowna RCMP’s Street Enforcement Unit tracked down and arrested McCulloch in a restaurant in Langley.

“Lesley McCulloch was arrested without any incident, by our team of plain clothes officers,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey. “Once arrested, McCulloch was turned over to uniformed officers of our Lower Mainland partners from the Langley RCMP.”

Lesley McCulloch remains in custody at this time. He is expected to appear in court next on Monday.
