Hinton RCMP execute search warrants and seize firearms and drugs
Members of the Hinton RCMP Detachment executed search warrants at two residences in the Sunset Trailer Park last night at approximately 9:00 p.m., which netted police several handguns, an assault rifle, a number of long guns and quantities of drugs and cash, and which resulted in the arrest of six people.
Upon arriving at the first residence to execute one of the two search warrants, police were met by a man with a loaded handgun but were able to effect his arrest without incident or injury.
Investigators searched both of the residences and seized two more loaded handguns, an assault rifle and three long-barrelled firearms together with a large quantity of ammunition. In addition to the firearms, police seized a number of knives and swords during the course of their search as well as a quantity of illegal drugs and a large amount of cash.
The searches at each of the residences uncovered quantities of hazardous materials and equipment which possibly were used in the manufacture of illegal narcotics. The residences were sealed off by police and the RCMP’s Clandestine Laboratory Enforcement and Response (CLEAR) Team is in the process of dismantling and disposing of the hazardous materials at both homes.
Six individuals have been arrested in connection to the searches and charges are pending.
