Seven adults, 4 men and 3 women were in the apartment at the time, the RCMP said.
 
Six people were detained and questioned by police at the scene prior to their release. An adult female associated to the apartment was arrested and returned to the RCMP office.
 
A "distraction device" was deployed by the Emergency Response Team upon entering the apartment.
