  • Print

A 24-year-old man is facing numerous drug and weapons charges following an arrest late Monday afternoon.

A lengthy investigation led Winnipeg police to pull over a Chrysler Sebring in the area of the 100 block of Watt Street at approximately 4:30 p.m. At that time, a man and a woman were taken into custody.

The ongoing investigation then led police to a pair of residences – one on Gordon Avenue and the other on Talbot Avenue – where officers located and seized the following items:

  • $2,145 Canadian currency
  • 6.5 ounces of powdered cocaine (estimated street value $7,800)
  • 14 tablets of Xanax (estimated street value $30)
  • a loaded .40 calibre handgun with additional ammunition

The man was released on a promise to appear.
