8 a.m. original story

Guelph Police aren't saying why yet, but four people were arrested early this morning after police searched a west end apartment.

"Details of that incident are still forthcoming and a release will be coming later today," say police.

Apart from that, police note that 199 calls came in Tuesday — including minor thefts, building alarms, 9-1-1 calls, suspicious and unwanted persons, collisions, traffic enforcement — but nothing really newsworthy.
