Several RCMP officers are responding to a home on Leathead Road in Rutland on Monday evening (Jan. 18).
The cause of the large police presence is not known, but neighbours say the house is known for drug activity and cops have been watching it for a number of days.

Several people have evacuated the home, but police had their guns drawn and were heard demanding more people to come out of the house. Witnesses say officers have also been yelling, asking the inhabitants of the home if they have weapons.
Leathead Road is currently closed between Franklyn and Hollywood roads.
More to come.
