RCMP report the discovery of what they call “a wide variety of prescription pills” at a rural residence south of the Qu’Appelle Valley.
Police say they were at the home Tuesday afternoon to assist in a child apprehension, when they discovered drugs including morphine. As a result, two women, aged 44 and 27 years, and a 52-year-old man have been charged with possession of morphine and possession of the narcotic for the purpose of trafficking.
RCMP and Social Services staff took a seven-month-child into their care. Two teenagers were also removed from the home and turned over to their grandparents. The Regina Humane Society seized six dogs.
RCMP do not believe anyone else is involved in the matter. No names will be released as the matter involves three youths.
