Winnipeg police were able to take drugs and weapons off of Elmwood’s streets after a traffic stop on Dec. 7.
Members of the East District, West District, Division 11 Community Support, Tactical Support Team and Safer Neighbourhoods units, as well as patrol officers, worked on a drug investigation that led to a traffic stop in the area of Thames Avenue and Watt Street around 5:50 p.m. on Dec. 7.
A 39-year-old male, 30-year-old female, and 15-year-old male were arrested and taken into custody. After a Controlled Drug and Substance Act search warrant was executed at two homes in the 500 block of Chalmers Avenue, a 21-year-old female was arrested at one of the residences.
Officers searched the houses and discovered 12 ounces of methamphetamine with an estimated street value of $90,000, 2.5 pounds of marijuana with an estimated street value of $7,500, as well as an additional 25 grams of marijuana.
Officers also seized weapons including two sawed-off rifles, two assault rifles, a hunting rifle, a shotgun, several hundred rounds of ammunition, several throwing knives, two sets of brass knuckles, and bear spray.
The four accused are facing several drug and weapons charges. One male is still at large and the investigation is continuing.
