Four people are facing numerous drug-related charges following a bust in Transcona Wednesday night.

The investigation dates back to July when members of the Winnipeg police street crimes unit received a tip about a group calling itself the African Mafia Street Gang.

A search warrant was obtained for a home in the 300 block of Regent Avenue, and Wednesday evening police seized a variety of drugs and arrested four people who were leaving the premises.

Among the items seized:

❚ six ounces of crack cocaine (estimated street value $10,800)

❚ three ounces of marijuana (estimated street value $840)

❚ 14 rocks of crack cocaine (estimated street value $280)

❚ $2,275 in Canadian currency

❚ $55 in U.S. currency

Two men, 23-year-old Ahmed Eyale and 20-year-old Mourad Mohamed, and two women, 21-year-old Sabrin Mahmue Jemei and 24-year-old Ruta Tesfalidet, all of Winnipeg, are facing charges.

The investigation continues.
