A Mississauga man and girl are facing a slew of gun and drug-related offences after police searched a home in the city’s east end.

Investigators from Peel’s major drugs and vice bureau executed a search warrant at a home near Dixie and Burnhamthorpe roads, allegedly finding three guns: a Winchester semi-automatic rifle; Lee Enfield bolt action rifle; Browning Arms 12 gauge shotgun; plus several boxes of ammunition.

Cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamines and heroin valued at more than $44,000 were also seized, police say.

Moises Llanos, 38, was held for a bail hearing on March 1 in Brampton.

A 17-year-old girl was also arrested.

Her identity is protected under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

She was released on a promise to appear.

Anyone with information is asked to call the major drugs and vice bureau at (905) 453-3311 ext.3500.  Information may also be left anonymously by calling Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), or by visiting www.peelcrimestoppers.ca, or by sending a text message to CRIMES (274637) with the word “PEEL” and then your tip.
