RCMP released this photo of guns seized from a pair of homes on Sandy Bay First Nation on Feb. 22, 2014.

Police seized at least seven firearms after a pair of raids on Sandy Bay First Nation.

Officers from three detatchments of Central Plains RCMP were joined by the Integrated Gang Intelligence Unit, the National Weapons Enforcement Team and the Dakota Ojibway Police Service for the raids, which were conducted on two homes on the first nation just before 10 a.m. on Saturday morning.
 
Searching the two homes turned up prohibited firearms, stolen firearms and ammunition — none of which was safely stored, police say.

Four Sandy Bay residents now face numerous charges. 

Debora Beaulieu has been charged with possession of a prohibited device, possession of a weapon obtained by crime and five counts of unsafe storage of a firearm.

Kenneth Beaulieu faces a single charge of unauthorized possession of a firearm.

Felix West faces six counts of unsafe storage of a firearm, as well as a single count each of possession of a firearm without a licence, possession or a prohibited device and possession of a weapon obtained by crimes.

Jeremy Whincup faces charges of possession of a controlled substance, possession of a weapon obtained by crime, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, four counts of unsafe storage of a firearm, and 25 other firearms-related charges.

Whincup has been held in custody while the other three have been released and will appear in a Portage la Prairie court on April 14.
