Over $5K in drugs and 12 guns seized by London police
The London police drugs and guns unit seized over $5,000 worth of drugs, nine handguns and three assault rifles from a residence on William Street.
Police executed a search warrant at the London residence on Friday around 10 p.m.
Officers also found hundreds of rounds of ammunition and over $13,000 in cash.
Following a press conference on Monday afternoon, police released a list of all the firearms that were seized:
- Smith and Wesson .45 Calibre semi-automatic handgun (Restricted)
- KAHR Arms .45 Calibre semi-automatic handgun (Prohibited)
- Taurus .38 Special revolver handgun (Prohibited)
- Rossi .44 Calibre revolver handgun (Prohibited)
- Smith and Wesson .357 magnum handgun (Prohibited)
- Taurus .45 Calibre semi-automatic handgun (Prohibited)
- Glock 17 9 millimetre semi-automatic handgun (Restricted)
- Smith and Wesson .40 Calibre semi-automatic handgun (Restricted)
- Glock 27 .40 Calibre semi-automatic handgun (Prohibited)
- Swiss Arms 5.56 MM NATO Rifle (Non-Restricted)
- Just Right Carbines 9mm Luger Rifle (Non-Restricted)
- Czech Arms 7.62 NATO Rifle (Non- Restricted)
Police say all the weapons have their serial numbers and a search found they have no known crime links in Canada, but a search in the U.S. is still being completed.
The six handguns listed as prohibited cannot be owned in Canada and police are considering a connection to gun trafficking.
The raid followed three drug-related arrests at Richond and York Streets earlier on Friday.
Scott McManus, 38, Omar Rahaman, 33, and Dayna Newman, 27 are each facing drug-related charges.
Thirty-year-old James Douglas was taken into custody at the William Street home. It's unclear what, if any, charges he may face.
