Four arrested on drug and weapons charges

Four arrested on drug and weapons charges Four men arrested Monday on various weapons and drug charges appeared in court Tuesday afternoon.

Four men arrested Monday on various weapons and drug charges appeared in court Tuesday afternoon.

They are charged after the RCMP’s federal investigative unit and emergency response team stopped two vehicles and raided one house Monday.

Police are saying very little about what happened.

One vehicle was stopped off of the Alaska Highway at Trails North and the other on Mountain View Drive.

Police later executed a search warrant on a residence in an undisclosed part of Whitehorse.

“As police believed weapons would be present at the locations, the Emergency Response Team with their specialized training and techniques were deployed to assist in these arrests to minimize risk to the officers and the public.”

RCMP says the arrests are “the culmination of a police-wide effort to address a group of offenders in our community.”

Steven Bullers, 40, of Whitehorse is facing a single charge of trafficking in cocaine.

Jeffery Redick, 34, and Taylor Wallace, 23, of Whitehorse, as well as Jason Morgan, 33, of Abbotsford are each facing multiple charges, including possession for the purpose of trafficking, possession of a prohibited weapon and possessing a loaded restricted firearm.

Bullers will be in court today for a possible bail hearing.

The others are being held behind bars for now while they try and find lawyers. They are scheduled to be in court next on Thursday.
