Weapons, Cocaine Seized from Fort Richmond Home

Winnipeg Police CrestA well-being call to a Fort Richmond home on Wednesday led to the seizure of weapons and cocaine by Winnipeg police.

Officers responded to the 100 block of Baylor Avenue and took two people into custody with the help of the tactical support team.

Police also secured a search warrant and located a loaded sawed-off 12-gauge shotgun, multiple rounds of ammunition, and four ounces of powder cocaine valued at $11,200. Also seized were packaging materials, a digital scale and items contaminated with what police believe to be methamphetamine.

Lewis Jordan Starr, 34, was arrested and charged with several drugs and weapons offences. A 25-year-old woman was also charged and later released on a promise to appear.

In a separate bust the same day, Winnipeg police seized a sawed-off .22 calibre rifle, and an ammunition magazine containing a .22 calibre cartridge from an apartment in the 400 block of Kennedy Street.

Corey Hart, 32, faces several charges. Myron Creed Bison Tanner of Portage la Prairie, 26, was charged with failing to comply with the condition of a recognizance order.

A third person was released without charges.
