Battlefords RCMP search yields drugs, guns and cash

The Battlefords RCMP says four suspects have been charged after a drug bust at a home in the town of Battleford.

On June 5th, officers executed a search warrant at a home on the 300 block of 29 Street. The warrant was in connection to a traffic stop, during which the RCMP determined drugs were being allegedly sold from the home.

Half a pound of cocaine and half a pound of psilocybin, or magic mushrooms, were allegedly seized during the search. Two guns and $3,500 in cash was also taken in.
