On Tuesday, Nov. 13, the Comox Valley RCMP responded to a report of a home invasion by two males in the Comox area.

Within two days, officers had executed two search warrants and made two arrests in this investigation. Further investigation revealed this was not a random act.

Ahmed Najih Younis, a 19-year-old Comox resident, has been charged with Break and Enter with Intent, Forcible Confinement, Robbery, Robbery with a Firearm, Assault, Uttering Threats, Extortion and Trafficking Cocaine.

Eian Gravell, 23, of Courtenay, has been charged with Break and Enter with Intent, Forcible Confinement, Robbery, Robbery with a Firearm, Assault, Uttering Threats and Extortion.

Both made a court appearance Thursday, and have been held in custody for court in Courtenay next week.

“The team work between all the Comox Valley RCMP sections this week was paramount in very quick arrests in this serious matter,” said Cpl. Jill Swann, NCO I/C of the Comox Valley RCMP Drug Section. “Good old fashioned police work, mixed with modern technology assisted us in the identification of the people involved.”
