Stratford Police are reminding the public that it’s very difficult to tell the difference between a real and a replica gun following a drug raid in the city on Thanksgiving Monday.
Officials say they seized a fake Uzi, that looked and felt like a real gun despite being a BB gun, during a drug raid at a home in the city on Monday. They also seized $600 worth of meth, knives, and a metal baton.
These weapons were seized as a result of a CDSA search warrant by the SCU. 3 locals 2 males 1 female arrested numerous charges. pic.twitter.com/fxUXitqhsi

Police say they always treat any firearm as real until they know for sure that it’s not.
As a result of the investigation, Stratford Police say two men and a woman face a number of weapon and drug related charges.
