BACKGROUND: On Saturday, June 8, the Battlefords RCMP and the “F” Division Emergency Response Team executed a high risk Controlled Drugs and Substances Act Warrant at a residence on the 1100 block of 106th street in North Battleford.
RCMP arrested three adult males and five adult females from the residence without incident. The subsequent search revealed several firearms, stolen property, and evidence of drug trafficking.
