Two people in custody, firearms seized after police search northside home

Lethbridge Regional Police have two people in custody and seized multiple firearms following the execution of a search warrant at a home along the 1300 block of 5 Avenue North earlier today.

 The operation required road closures in the area for approximately two hours between 2:30 and 4:30 p.m. while police were on scene. Police wish to thank members of the public for their cooperation in avoiding the area during that time.

 Public safety is always a priority in these matters and some neighbouring homes were evacuated as a precaution. 

 Investigation in the matter is ongoing.

 No further information will be released tonight.
