Four people have been arrested and charged with multiple drug and firearm offences following a recent drug trafficking investigation by the Edmonton police.

During a search of two homes in west Edmonton on Sept. 11, investigators with the targeted offender section discovered methamphetamine, cocaine and fentanyl pills worth an estimated $370,000, police said Friday in a news release.

Officers also seized $26,347 in cash. Investigators found a handgun and ammunition in a hidden compartment in a car parked nearby.

At the time of the arrests, the four suspects were out on bail after facing previous related charges, police said.
