Conditional sentence for man caught up in police drug sweep

A Burnaby man received a conditional jail sentence after being caught in a police drug sweep in 2011.

Allen Xuan Zu, who was 21 at the time of the arrest, was one of four men caught up in the investigation that started at a Richmond auto dealership.

Police said at the time that the RCMP investigation was launched after the local dealership found a handgun in a vehicle left for repairs.

The investigation led to the discovery of $50,000 worth of heroin, some cocaine, and a drug packaging site at a property in Burnaby.

Zu appeared in Richmond provincial court on Tuesday, where he was handed a conditional sentence of two years less a day, and a lifetime firearms prohibition.

Also arrested were Richmond's Jasdeep Singh Dhaliwal, and Burnaby's Valon Chen and To Lau.
