$20K in fentanyl, replica guns seized by London police
Police have charged two London men after seizing drugs, cash, replica guns and bullets from a vehicle and three homes. One man was arrested Thursday evening after police stopped a vehicle on South Street near Wellington Street. The guns and drugs unit — including London police, RCMP and OPP officers — later arrested a second man at a home on Albert Street after a string of search warrants. Police found three replica handguns, three replica machine guns, nearly $20,000 worth of fentanyl and cocaine, and 34 rounds of ammunition after searching the car and three homes. A 32-year-old man is facing two counts of drug possession for the purpose of trafficking, and unauthorized possession of a restricted weapon. The second man, 38, is facing a charge of possession for the purpose of trafficking. Both men were also charged with possession of firearm or ammunition contrary to a prohibition order.
