Police seize rifle, drugs from house across from Sidney Elementary School

No one in danger during police action Friday, Nov. 27 say police.

Sidney North Saanich RCMP seized weapons

Four people were arrested after police found weapons, cash and drugs in a house across the street from Sidney Elementary School.

On Nov. 27, Sidney North Saanich RCMP’s General Investigative Section executed a search warrant for drugs at a home on Seventh Street in Sidney, right across from the elementary School.

Corporal Erin Fraser said there was no threat to the school or danger to the children — adding that safety might have been in jeopardy because of the proximity of drugs and weapons. There was no danger during the bust itself, she said.

Police found packaged cocaine, drug trafficking paraphernalia, cash and a rifle with a prohibited high capacity magazine and ammunition. A set of brass knuckles with a conductive energy weapon (taser) incorporated into the design was seized by police as well.

Four people who were inside of the residence were arrested. They include two females aged 17 and 23 and two males aged 19 and 21. The males are facing drug possession, drug trafficking and weapons-related charges.

Fraser said the investigation was conducted prior to the search warrant being executed Friday, as police had to gather enough evidence to substantiate the search warrant.

The investigation continues.
