Drugs and weapons charges were laid on a 54-year old Timmins resident, while an assault has led to a pair of charges for a 25-year old local.

First up, 54-year old Mirka St. Louis faces four counts after a search warrant was executed on a local residence back on January 11th.

Police say they recovered “206 Methamphetamine tablets, approximately 29 grams of Cannabis-Marijuana, approximately 1 gram of Cocaine, a Cannabis-Marijuana food item, a firearm, ammunition, and other drug paraphernalia.”

The unidentified victim suffered injuries and required medical treatment.

During investigation, police learned the accused was bound by a probation order to keep the peace and be of good behaviour.
