A federal prosecutor is seeking a seven-year prison term, for a 33 year old man, who has pleaded guilty to drug and weapons charges, following a large seizure of cocaine, pot, and llegal weapons, last March, in Dawson Creek.

33 year old, Dennis Walter Ewonchuk pleaded guilty last week to possessing a kilogram of cocaine, production of marijuana, from a grow-op found in his home and possession of unlicenced weapons, including a fully automatic sub-machinegun and six loaded high-capacity magazines, each, containing 32 bullets.

The Vancouver Sun reports, a firearms expert estimated, all 192 bullets could be fired, in less than a minute, from the military-style gun.

Hells Angels “support” clothing was also seized in the raid, of the home, of Ewonchuk, and 22 year old, Leah Underwood, who pleaded guilty to growing marijuana and possessing the proceeds of crime, exceeding 5,000.  

Over 42,000 dollars in cash was found in Underwood’s purse, and she’s already been sentenced, to time served, after spending eight months in custody.

At the time of the bust, police reported, it was the largest single seizure of cocaine, in Dawson Creek history.  Ewonchuk is scheduled to be sentenced, on Dec. 14th.
