Local residents reported seeing a large police presence in the area, which is close to Brooke Elementary School.

Police seized two vehicles from the residence, as well cocaine, oxycodone, marijuana, a significant amount cash and two prohibited handguns. The drugs from the seizure had an estimated street value of approximately $6,000.

Elliot and Devin Bains have been charged with a number offences, including the possession and trafficking of a number of drugs, possession of two semi-automatic handguns. Devin Bains has also been charged with the possession without a license and improper storing of a restricted revolver handgun.

Both Elliot and Devin Bains were held arrested without incident and were held in-custody to appear in court.
