EDMONTON — A junior federal cabinet minister’s brother has been arrested in a drug bust.

Tim Uppal, minister of state for multiculturalism, says he found out about his brother’s arrest through the media.

Uppal, who is the MP for Edmonton-Sherwood Park, also says that anyone found guilty of drug offences should — quote — “face the full force of the law.”

Uppal’s brother was arrested with three other men after Edmonton police searched three houses last month and found drugs, guns, a Taser and cash.

Raymanpreet Singh Uppal, who is 28, faces a count of possession of an offensive weapon along with several drug-related charges.

Tim Uppal says in a statement that he’s “always spoken out against drugs in our communities.”

Police say they recovered two handguns and ammunition, a conductive energy weapon, cocaine, marijuana, hashish and about $12,000 in case.
