On Friday, May 4, 2018, the Regina Police Service Drug Unit, Street Gang Unit and other law enforcement partners conducted drug enforcement in the city of Regina, with the execution of two high-risk, Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA), warrants at two (2) separate addresses. The enforcement was supported by the Community Services Division (Patrol), K9 and the Regina Police Service Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team.
Several individuals have been arrested as a result of the combined enforcement activity. Drugs, Canadian currency and firearms have been identified in the initial stages of the drug investigation.
A detailed media release will be completed in the near future. Drug enforcement activity and investigations remain ongoing.
The Regina Police Service and its partners would like to thank Regina residents and motorists in the areas of Atchison Crescent and Centennial Street for their cooperation and patience during these enforcement activities this afternoon. Although today’s searches were carried out over a relatively short period, the enforcement activities and tactics were, at times, noisy and disruptive. The goal of drug enforcement is always public safety and service to the community, while also protecting the safety of the officers involved. The tactics used today were the result of continual risk assessment and were required for the circumstances at each location. The Regina Police Service regrets any inconvenience caused by these enforcement operations and thanks the public for its continued trust and support.
