The Ottawa police have charged four people with multiple drug offences after a raid Friday at a Vanier property that has been the subject of community complaints and was the site of a recent shooting.The tactical unit executed warrants and entered the property on the 200 block of St-Jacques Street on Friday evening. It found cocaine, numerous hydromophone pills, codeine, crack cocaine and Canadian currency, according to a release issued Saturday.The four people — three men and a woman — were charged with multiple counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking and possession of proceeds of crime.The arrests were part of a community policing project focused on addressing “criminal behaviour and social disorder issues” linked to problematic Vanier addresses that have been identified by local residents.The arrests were the culmination of one of several such investigations underway, police said. Officers from across the service, including a bike and foot patrol unit, are involved.Police are working with the City of Ottawa to involve landlords in cleaning up some of the identified problem addresses.
