Police say that an investigation was underway surrounding an adult male was in possession of a firearm. Officers applied for and were granted judicial permission to search the man’s residence located in the 2600 block of Gem Avenue for firearm related offences.

During this search officers located two pellet handguns, a canister of bear spray, a cartridge breathing mask, chemicals known to be used in the manufacturing of homemade explosives and chemicals known to be involved in the production of methamphetamine.
The roadway in the area was temporarily closed as members of the Windsor Police Service Explosive Disposal Unit attended and assessed the scene.
