A gun-pointing incident inside of a city home has led to weapons and drug-related charges being laid against a 16-year-old London boy.
London police were called about a teen who was believed to be in the downtown area after allegedly pointing a firearm while inside a home around 6:30 a.m. on Wednesday.
Officers were given a description of the boy and made an arrest around 11 a.m.
No injuries were reported, police said.
During the investigation, police seized a 9 mm Rock Island Armory semi-automatic pistol, 16 rounds of ammunition, 15 grams of suspected cocaine, 19 grams of suspected methamphetamine, three grams of fentanyl, four dilaudid pills, 11 morphine pills, a digital scale, and an undisclosed amount of cash. The estimated value of the drugs seized is just over $4,000.
A 16-year-old Londoner has been charged with nine offences including pointing a firearm, unauthorized possession of a firearm, possession of a loaded/unloaded regulated firearm, careless storage of firearm, possession of drugs and possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking.
The teen, who cannot be named because of his age, was scheduled to appear in court in relation to the charges on Thursday.
