Stratford Gazette

Stratford police have seized numerous weapons and drugs from a Stratford home.

A search warrant was executed at 142 Grange St., just east of one of the city's elementary schools, on Tuesday, April 1 by officers from the Street Crime Unit and Emergency Response Unit.

Nine people were arrested in the house and six have subsequently been charged.

Methamphetamine, cocaine, morphine, marijuana, and oxycodone were found in the residence. The drugs are valued at more than $5,000. Police did not release details about the kinds of weapons that were confiscated.

A total of 29 charges were laid.

Barron helps sniff out suspect

Police dog Barron is being credited with assisting in the arrest of a Stratford man with five outstanding warrants.

Police observed and recognized the 31-year-old man riding a bicycle on Gordon Street on Thursday, April 3 at 5:44 p.m. When  police approached the suspect, he dropped the bike and began to run through a commercial property on Ontario Street and the backyards of several homes on Albert Street. Barron and his police handler tracked the man for over an hour before finally locating him in the back yard of an Albert Street home hiding under a porch.

Further investigation revealed that while he was being tracked by police, the suspect entered an apartment and took a coat in an attempt to disguise himself. He also demanded to be sprayed with cologne. The victim's apartment door was slightly ajar when the suspect entered the unit.

The accused has been charged with forcible entry to a home, assault, theft under $5,000, possession of stolen property, and breaching his probation.
