Police find drugs, stolen property, silenced handgun

Mounties have busted a Bonnie and Clyde team for the second time in four months and laid 21 fresh charges against the allegedly crooked pair.
On Jan. 21, Lloydminster RCMP conducted a search warrant at a home in the 3300 block of 47 Avenue, Lloydminster, Sask., where they believed stolen property could be found.
The search did indeed produce some swiped goods, including a trailer that had the Vehicle Identification Number illegally altered.
The initial warrant lead to a second one,  which resulted in police nabbing substantial quantities of illegal drugs, including cocaine, methamphetamine, and fentanyl.
Cops also took a .22 handgun — equipped with a silencer — off the streets.
Jimmy-Lee MacLean, 31, and Chereise Morris, 29, both of Lloydminster, were arrested and have been charged with a combined total of 21 offences.
The charges include: possession of property obtained by crime, possession of a prohibited firearm knowing it was stolen, possession of a prohibited device (the silencer), possessing weapons contrary to a Firearms Prohibition, failing to comply with court conditions, and three charges of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.
Just four months ago, in September, police said MacLean and Morris were subjects of a search warrant executed on a storage locker and their residence.
The cops hit a jackpot of stolen items, and stolen ATVs, a dirt bike and a generator were recovered as a result.
The pair was released on bail and were on court imposed conditions at the time of last week’s   arrest.
MacLean and Morris were both remanded to appear in Saskatchewan Provincial Court, to speak to the charges.
“This search warrant is a perfect example of how drug and property crimes are so closely intermingled,” said Sgt. Gerald Walker.
“People involved in these trades negatively affect the lives of many, and if they are not willing to change their ways, (they) need to be in jail,” he said.
“The Lloydminster RCMP continue their efforts to remove threats from the streets to increase public safety.”
