----Police seize drugs and weapons in Aylmer raid
Conducting a raid in an Aylmer residence on July 29, Gatineau Police (SPVG) arrested one woman and seized a wide variety of illegal drugs and firearms. According to a press release issued by the SPVG on July 30, the incident took place at around 5:00 am when police executed a search warrant in an apartment unit of a housing complex located at 50 rue Cormier.
Upon arriving at the scene, officers arrested a 19-year-old female – the only person in the unit – and transported her to the police station for questioning by investigators. Released with conditions to appear in court, the perpetrator received a number of illegal drug and firearm possession charges to be filed with the province’s Director of Criminal and Penal Prosecutions.
After searching the apartment, police seized nearly 500 grams of magic mushrooms, 114 grams of cocaine, around 86 grams of hashish, over 67 grams of illegal cannabis, 13 grams of MDMA, five ecstasy tablets, 180 prescription pills, and a bag of cannabis resin. They also took one .22 caliber pistol, one magazine of firearm ammunition, as well as 12 gauge and .22 caliber weapon ammunition, one replica firearm, two cellphones, two scales, and $2,000 cash.
The SPVG says the investigation was short and made possible because of information from the public regarding the possession of firearms in the area. Noting that the investigation is ongoing, the SPVG urges anyone with information about possible drug trafficking activity in the city to contact its information line at (819) 243-4636, option 2.
