London police are searching for one suspect, and have arrested another, after a drug bust in the city’s east end Wednesday that took more than $95,000 of drugs off the streets.

Two London men are facing multiple charges after police raided locations on English Street, Cabell Street, Burnside Drive, Trafalgar Street and East Street.

Cops turned up 737.5 grams of what they suspect is cocaine, 166 grams of methamphetamine, oxycodone and a five-gallon tub of suspected phenacetin – a U.S. Food and Drug Administration-banned painkiller used as a cutting agent for cocaine.

A .22-calibre rifle, weigh scale and about $4,000 cash was also seized.

Police have issued a warrant for a 49-year-old London man who is facing charges for using, handling or storing a gun carelessly, possessing one without authority and owning a gun while prohibited. They didn’t publish his name.

“He has not been arrested, he has not been taken into custody,” said London police Const. Sandasha Bough.

“We’re currently searching.”

A 47-year-old London man is charged with three counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking. He is appearing in court Friday.

London police are asking for anyone with information to call (519) 661-5670 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
