Terrace RCMP are reporting the seizure of stolen guns, bullets, suspected methamphetamine, crack and powder cocaine, and fentanyl after the execution of two search warrants today.

In a press release police said an ongoing investigation led to the search of a residence on Kenney St around 8:30 a.m. March 22. During the operation, police located a rifle, a stolen shotgun, several hundred rounds of ammunition and an explosives detonator.

Keith William Seymour, 35, of no fixed address, was arrested for numerous outstanding warrants, including a Terrace warrant for kidnapping and extortion related to an incident earlier this month. A woman was also arrested but released.

With evidence from the scene, police obtained a second search warrant for a Terrace-area hotel. A street drug suspected to be GHB, several thousand dollars in cash and a stolen .44 caliber handgun were seized.

Terrace’s Gilbert Joseph Leblanc, 39, was charged with numerous firearms offences. A woman was arrested here too but released on a Promise to Appear.

More to come.
