During the search police say they found two loaded handguns, a rifle, a pellet gun, and quantities of illicit drugs and currency inside the residence.

The search was the result of a drug trafficking investigation started earlier in the month by the police service’s Drugs and Guns Enforcement Unit (DIGS).

“During the course of the investigation, a suspect and suspect residence, located in the 1400 block of Pillette Road, were identified as being involved. As well, a male with an outstanding Canada-wide parole suspension warrant was believed to be at the residence,” says a Windsor police news release issued on Friday.

“Judicial authorization to search the residence was applied for and granted.”

The DIGS Unit worked with the Provincial Repeat Offenders Parole Enforcement (ROPE) Squad to execute the warrant. When they went in, several people were found inside, including the two suspects who were arrested “without incident.”

Also, a 22-year-old man who was arrested on the outstanding parole suspension warrant faces multiple charges including possession of a prohibited loaded firearm and possession of MDMA for the purposes of trafficking.

As well, a 27-year-old woman from Windsor is facing a drug charge for the purpose of trafficking and a 52-year-old Windsor man found inside the home was arrested on an outstanding warrant.
