Two people are facing charges after London police executed a search warrant at a residence on Forward Avenue.

Officers observed a suspected stolen vehicle parked outside the residence around 2:30 p.m. Thursday. They say there was a firearm associated with the vehicle, so the Emergency Response Unit was called in to help and the road was closed in the interest of public safety.

Police executed the search warrant seven hours later, just after 9:30 p.m. Thursday. Officers seized an SKS replica firearm, several bicycles, a small motorcycle and a stolen pickup truck.

An unidentified man was arrested at the residence in relation to an OPP investigation and was turned over to them.

Two other individuals have been charged, but London police say they have yet to be arrested.

Donald MacMillan, 26, of Ilderton is charged with two counts of possession of stolen property over $5,000 and breach of probation. Chantalle Daw, 24, of London is charged with failing to comply with recognizance.

Police say the investigation is ongoing.
