By February 1, 2014Abbotsford News, Crime, News

Charges laid in the January 2, 2014 homicide case of 32 year old Matthew Campbell.

Today Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) is announcing that a Second Degree Murder charge was laid against 24 year old Jimi Sandhu for the murder of Matthew Campbell. Mr. Sandhu was arrested in Vancouver yesterday; he will be making a court appearance in Abbotsford on Monday February 3, 2014.

Both Campbell and Sandhu were known to police.

“Today’s announcement is the result of a fast paced investigation that commenced on the day of Mr. Campbell’s murder and continued around the clock for the past 30 days. The assistance from the Abbotsford Police Department and the partnership formed between IHIT and CFSEU-BC contributed to the successful resolution of this investigation. Gang related homicide investigations are often difficult to solve. Having CFSEU-BC investigators working so closely with our team was extremely helpful.” Says, Superintendent Kevin Hackett, Officer in Charge of IHIT.

“As British Columbia’s integrated anti-gang police agency, it is essential that CFSEU-BC collaborate with units like IHIT and our policing partners to not only ensure communities around the province are safe from gang-related violence but that when that violence does occur that we are there to assist,” says Chief Superintendent Dan Malo, Chief Officer of CFSEU-BC.

    In Dec., 2011 Jimi Sandu was charged with assault with a weapon,
    B. & e and possession of a prohibited firearm related to a March, 2010 incident

    In Jan., 2011 he was charged with 2 counts of forcible confinement, two counts of using a firearm
    He was found quilty for two counts of using a firearm, served one day in
    jail and 31 days served.

    In May, 2011, he was in a car with three other people, two of whom were received drug possession charges.

    In Jan, 2014, Jimi Sandu is charged with first degree murder of Matt

    The court rulings clearly did not address the serious nature of the
    laws, which were broken by Sandu and thus, has put the public @ great risk and great cost to taxpayers.

    It is time to review outdated drug/weapons laws in Canada.
