KAMLOOPS - Police got five guns and lots of ammunition, as well as drugs and stolen property from a search of a well known home on the North Shore, yesterday. 

Kamloops RCMP Crime Reduction Unit used a search warrant on the Royal Avenue home and found five shotguns and rifles, two "real looking" pellet guns, 25 grams of "fentanyl/heroin" among other drugs, a "large amount" of stolen property specifically tools and electronics and a stolen 1986 Corvette, according to a release issued today, Jan. 13 by Cpl. Jeff Bingley.

Four people were arrested "and all are well known to police," Bingley said. One man is considered a prolific offender and was held in custody pending charges. 

"In the coming days, police will be sifting through the property seized, with the hope of returning the items to their rightful owners," Bingley said.
