Prince George RCMP have arrested a man they say is one of the high-ranking Original Gangster members of the Game Tight Soldiers (GTS) gang.
On September 24, members of the Prince George GIS Drug Section, Crime Reduction Team and North District Drug Section arrested two people on numerous drug and firearm offences. Eric James Fike, 30, and an unidentified woman were arrested after they attempted to retrieve a bag that had contained two loaded handguns, a Mac 10 sub-machine gun with ammunition, and eight ounces of cocaine from a wooded area near the Lower Mud River Bridge.
Police subsequently obtained and executed a search warrant at a residence on Gauthier Road. Police seized approximately two more ounces of cocaine, 159 flaps of heroin, approximately three lbs of marijuana, and other related drug-trafficking paraphernalia from the residence.
Forensic evidence located on the container in which the guns were located has been positively identified. The fingerprints are associated to one of the leaders of the GTS, who is also a Striker for the Prince George Renegades. This male, who cannot yet be named, is currently in jail facing numerous other charges including firearms offences.
Police say the GTS level and structure can be identified by their tattoos. The lowest-level members of the GTS can be identified by a cross with no other writing. Mid-level members of the GTS have a cross, GTS and PG insignia (Prince George). The highest-level members of the GTS are the “Original Gangsters” who have a cross, GTS, and OG insignia (Original Gangster). Fike’s tattoo is a cross, GTS, and OG.
Fike is facing 25 charges after the police investigation, which lasted three days.
