A 36-year-old man is facing gun and drug charges after Saskatoon police seized a rifle, methamphetamine, marijuana and counterfeit cash from a Mayfair neighbourhood home Wednesday.

Members of the police guns and gangs unit, alongside heavily armed tactical officers with the armoured BearCat vehicle, executed a high-risk search warrant at the home on the 1600 block of Avenue C North before arresting the man.

Officers located a Winchester rifle, 7.75 grams of meth, 5.6 grams of marijuana and 10 counterfeit Canadian $100 bills, police said in a media release.

The man has since been charged with possessing a firearm without a licence, possessing a weapon dangerous to the public, storing a firearm in a careless manner, possessing counterfeit money, two counts of possessing a controlled substance and two counts of breaching an undertaking.

Several streets in the area were blocked off as police conducted the search.
