A well-known gang associate living in Esquimalt has been sentenced to seven years in prison after pleading guilty to several drug and firearms related charges.

In March 2014, the Combined Forces Special Enforcement United of British Columbia received a tip that 34-year-old Isaac Drennan was allegedly trafficking drugs and in possession of firearms contrary to a lifetime prohibition.

During a search of his home in October, the police seized heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine and handguns. Drennan was taken into custody.

Drennan pleaded guilty to three counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking, possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm and one count of possession of a firearm without a licence.

He was sentenced to seven years in prison, but will only serve five years due to time served for pre-trial custody.

Drennan’s associate Dustin Robert Alexander Wadsworth, a long-time gang associate with previous drug and violence-related convictions, was also sentenced to two years in prison for possession for the purpose of trafficking.
