RCMP members from six units worked together to seize methamphetamine and cocaine at an Ahtahkakoop residence Wednesday.

Officers from Shellbrook, Spiritwood, Ahtahkakoop, Blaine Lake, Traffic Service and the RCMP police dog services all assisted in the execution of a search warrant under the Controlled Drug and Substances Act.

Fourteen people were found inside the residence and arrested. Three people had outstanding warrants for their arrest. A large number of controlled substances, weapons, a stolen vehicle and drug paraphernalia were found at the residence.

Small amounts of cocaine and 65 individual packages of meth weighing about 5 grams were also located.
