In addition, police also seized a number of items including a 12,000 volt conducted energy weapon, a switch-blade, suspected fentanyl and suspected methamphetamine and $1,000 worth of Canadian currency.

Last week, police announced that several men forced their way into a home on Cedarbrae Avenue at around 2:35 a.m. on June 12.

Once inside, police say they attempted to assault a man.

Police said the same home had also been invaded on the night of June 9, when six people including a woman, allegedly forced their way into the home before assaulting the man with an edged weapon before taking off in dark-coloured SUVs.
