A joint investigation by Red Deer RCMP and Calgary police has resulted in the seizure of guns and drugs, police said Friday.

Police seized nine guns, 12,159 rounds of ammunition, $14,000 in cash and nearly 400 grams of drugs after executing search warrants in both cities.

They said an organized crime group with ties to British Columbia was active in drug trafficking and violent crimes in the Red Deer area.

Three suspects were arrested in a high-risk takedown in Calgary after trying to rob a pawn shop and then fleeing in a stolen vehicle.

Police said the investigation is continuing and more charges may be laid in the coming weeks.
