Saskatchewan RCMP say a high-risk controlled drug and substances warrant was executed at a residence in the 1100 block of 106 Street in North Battleford at about 3 a.m. Saturday.
Three men and five women were arrested without incident, according to RCMP.
The Battlefords RCMP and the “F” Division Emergency Response Team carried out the warrant, creating an increased police presence in that area.
A subsequent search by police found several firearms, stolen property, and evidence of drug trafficking.
RCMP say the investigation is ongoing as of Saturday at 6 p.m. and it is “complex,” with pending charges for several of the arrested individuals.
They say there will be an update on charges at a later date and there are no further details at this time.
