Scooping up nearly $90,000 in illegal drugs and weapons during a Stony Plain raid is helping make the community safer, police say.
"(We are) very pleased to have been able to prevent this cache of weapons and drugs from circulating into our community," said Spruce Grove/ Stony Plain RCMP Const. Janine Peter.
Mounties seized about $86,000 in weapons and drugs after raiding a rural property near Stony Plain last Friday.
Among the items seized were five guns, including a loaded .22 calibre pistol and loaded Israel Military Industries Galil semi-automatic assault rifle.
Marijuana and hash -- with a combined street value of $83,500 -- were also seized.
Charged with dozens of firearm- and drug-related offences is 49-year-old Glenn Frimen Tremblay.
