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.
