Nine-millimetre Mack 11 machine pistol found with a cache of weapons during a drug search

A nine-millimetre Mack 11 machine pistol found with a cache of weapons during a drug search was an “unusual” find, said Constable Amy Phillipo of the London Police Service. London city police went looking for drugs today and found a stockpile of weapons, including a prohibited semi-automatic pistol that can easily be converted into an automatic gun. But knives and guns that can be legally purchased in Canada are frequently found during drug investigations, she said, adding some are registered and some are not. The semi-automatic Mack 11, which holds 13 rounds of ammunition, is a prohibited weapon in Canada, said a member of the drug and gun squad, adding it can be converted into an automatic weapon with simple modifications. “It has no military use,” he said. “It is not used by the Canadian forces.” Phillipo said the gun was seized along with drugs, seven knives, a homemade tazer and pepper spray after police executed a search warrant at a Dundas Street residence about 9:30 a.m. today. A suspect in a drug investigation was spotted and arrested at Dundas and Burwell streets before police searched the address listed on the warrant, said Phillipo. After the search, police charged Anthony Gratkowski, 23, of London with 11 weapons and firearms offences, possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, possession of marihuana for the purpose of trafficking and possession of the proceeds of crime. During the search, police also seized ammunition, a digital scale, 110 grams of marihuana bud, 2.5 kilograms of marihuana shake and a small quantity of cocaine as well as the weapons. Police displayed the seizure for the media this afternoon and the items included a bayonet with a grip handle and wrist strap, a machete with a long blade, a knife with a split blade and a dagger that tapers to a needle point.
