The armoured truck proceeded to drive onto the front lawn of a home in the area while SWAT team members followed close behind.

A battering ram was used to smash out several front windows of the home, according to reports from the scene.

CTV News witnessed one person being led away from the scene in handcuffs – while tactical team members continued to watch the home.

At one point, SWAT members donned gas masks and flew a drone towards the home and through the windows previously broken by the battering ram.

Two loud bangs were heard sometime later. As of 6:25 p.m., officers remained at the scene.

Regina police later posted online that the operation had concluded around 8:45 p.m.
