A Hamilton couple is facing a slew of charges after police seized roughly $1 million worth of drugs in the city.

Police responded to reports of a weapon being found inside a storage unit at a facility on Prichard Rd. around 3:30 p.m. Sunday.

Officers found an Israeli assault rifle, ammunition, about $200,000 worth of cocaine, heroin, an industrial oven, several containers and chemicals used to make cocaine.

Members of the Guns and Gangs Unit continued the investigation and tracked down the owners of the unit at a home on Charlton Ave. East.

“Throughout the day on April 6, 2020, police conducted surveillance and observed the male leave the apartment building. He was safely arrested in the area of Upper Gage and Fennell Avenue East. The other owner was arrested at an address on the Hamilton Mountain,” said Hamilton police in a news release.

Investigators executed five search warrants on two vehicles, two apartment units, and a storage locker. Officers discovered five containers with roughly $750,000 of meth inside, a submachine gun, loaded magazines, fentanyl and bear spray.
