Drug charges have been laid against two Langley, B.C., men who are alleged senior members of the so-called 856 gang.

Leonard Pelletier, 48 and Jason Wallace, 26, were among three men who were arrested last July, said the province's anti-gang unit in a release.

Pelletier has been charged with five counts of drug trafficking and one count of resisting or obstructing a peace officer.

Wallace has been charged with six counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.

Following the arrests, the agency said drugs totalling nearly $400,000 had been seized from an apartment in a 10,000 sq. ft. home in Langley.

Pelletier and Wallace are scheduled to make a court appearance in Surrey on July 15.

The gang, named after a telephone prefix for Aldergrove, an area of Langley, first came to police attention in 2007.
