Hamilton couple facing multiple charges in million-dollar drug bust: police

A Hamilton, Ont., couple are facing multiple charges connected to the possession of illegal firearms and an array of street drugs worth close to $1 million.

Investigators say the first of several searches began around 3:30 p.m. on Sunday afternoon after a report of a firearm inside a storage locker at a property on Pritchard Road.

Officers on scene say they recovered an Israeli assault rifle, plus about $200,000 worth of cocaine, some heroin, a large industrial oven and chemicals that could be used for drug production.
