The call for an assault but when the RCMP got to the scene, they discovered a whole lot more.
The assault call came in around 1 a.m. Tuesday and police were dispatched to Royal Crescent.
When officers arrived they found a woman at the residence. The investigation led officers to believe that one person, or possibly more, escaped out of a window before police arrived.

A search warrant was obtained and executed on the residence. Investigators located and seized the following items:
- Three marijuana plants
- A quantity of dried marijuana
- A quantity of methamphetamine
- A quantity of cocaine
- Two machetes
- Nun-chucks (prohibited weapon)
- Several knives
- Two shotguns and ammo

- Drug trafficking paraphernalia
- Two laptops
- A number of items believed to be used to make fraudulent identification
