Teenager found on scene as police search residence near Kipling and Albion

Five people have been arrested after a marijuana bust in Rexdale, according to police at 12 Division. 

Police say they executed a search warrant on Saturday night at a residence near Kipling Avenue and Albion Road. Five people between the ages of 27 and 49 were arrested and face charges of drug possession for the purposes of trafficking. 

Four of the suspects have the same last name, but investigators could not immediately say how or if they might be related. 

A 13-year-old was also present at the scene but was not charged. 

Police say they seized a moderate amount of marijuana. 

"We didn't get Keyser Söze," one officer told CBC News, referring to the master criminal from the movie The Usual Suspects.
