A suspended Surrey Mountie is facing more than a dozen charges relating to drug trafficking, gun possession and identity theft, RCMP officials announced yesterday.

Const. David Clarke was removed from active service in early October, following allegations of involvement with drugs and illegal firearms, but was never formally charged until now.

Of the 15 counts currently being brought against him, 13 are gun-related, and involve unauthorized ownership of six distinct weapons, including two semiautomatic
rifles, two handguns and a Mossberg shotgun, as well as ammunition.

The remaining two charges accuse Clarke of both possessing and trafficking marijuana, and of possessing stolen property, including the identification documents of “several persons.”

Clarke was indicted yesterday in provincial court in Surrey.

He is expected to return to court in the new year.
