Six people are facing charges after the Ottawa Police Service seized four handguns and a large amount of drugs in three home raids.

Search warrants were executed Wednesday, with the assistance of tactical and K9 units, on Burleigh Private near Cummings Avenue, on Cummings Avenue in the Cummings and Cyrville area, and on Lees Avenue in Old Ottawa East.

The drug seizures included 100,000 methamphetamine pills, cocaine, crack cocaine, MDMA, oxycodone pills, as well as 13 kilos (28.6 lbs) of marijuana. 

In addition to the guns, police found hollow point ammunition and extended magazines.

A large amount of Canadian cash was also uncovered.
