Two men are facing weapons-related charges following a Friday afternoon (Dec 21) arrest in Langley's Walnut Grove neighbourhood.

Officers with the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of British Columbia (CFSEU-BC) took the pair into custody shortly before 2:30 p.m. near 90A Avenue and 204 Street, a cul-de-sac of large houses on big lots with well-landscaped yards.

A written statement released by CFSEU media relations officer Sgt. Lindsey Houghton said the uniformed officers were acting on a tip.

Charges are pending against a 31-year old man and a 25-year old man, both of no fixed address, for allegedly breaching their firearms prohibition orders and firearms-related offenses related to previous possession of firearms.

Both are known to police and have gang ties, the Houghton statement said.

They are being held in custody pending charges.
