On November 29, 2017, Vancouver Police arrested 34-year-old Vancouver resident Derek Stephens, who is facing 39 firearms-related charges. This arrest was part of Project Tactic, a five-month VPD investigation that began this past summer.

As this matter is now before the courts and subject to a publication ban, the VPD has nothing further for release at this time. Mr. Stephen’s next court appearance is in Vancouver Provincial Court this afternoon.
