On Friday August 5th, 2016 several officers from the Wetaskiwin RCMP executed a search warrant at a home in Wetaskiwin.   Police entered the residence and conducted a search.

Four individuals, 2 males and 2 females, were arrested in the house without incident. Inside the home police found 2 stolen rifles and a small quantity of crystal meth and marijuana.

A 29 year old male and a 27 year old female are facing charges relating to possession of a controlled substance. The female is also being charged with breach of several court orders that relate to past drug related files. The other two individuals were released without charges.

Police are still investigating the two stolen firearms and how they came to be in the house. Charges relating to the guns may be forthcoming in the future.
