Drug, weapons, cash seized, man arrested

  • Print

Police were looking for a wanted suspect.

Instead, they found weapons, drugs and thousands in cash.

That's the quirky backdrop behind a police visit to a West Kildonan home early Saturday resulting in the arrest of a 27-year-old man who now faces multiple charges.

Officers went to a home in the 1st 100 block of Hutton Street around 3:30 a.m. Saturday in hopes of finding a man they have an arrest warrant for, Const. Eric Hofley said.

Once there, however, officers saw drugs and guns inside the home and moved to seize them, said Hofley.

A .303 rifle, two replica guns (including one which looked like a mini-Uzi machine gun), ammunition, cocaine worth $680 and a small amount of ecstasy were among what police found, along with $4,930 in cash, Hofley said.

Three people were initially taken into custody, but only Lloyd Rodney Beardy was charged.

Beardy faces drug-trafficking and weapons-related charges, along with an allegation he possessed the proceeds of crime.

He was held at the Winnipeg Remand Centre.
