Acting on two search warrants, Portage la Prairie RCMP seized drugs and weapons from an undisclosed city address.
Just after 9 a.m. on Oct. 15, Portage la Prairie RCMP, along with RCMP Police Dog Services and the West District Crime Reduction Enforcement Support Team, executed the search warrants at a city residence and executed a second related search warrant on a vehicle in Portage.
Police seized more than 200 grams of methamphetamine, prescription pills, knives, a bat, bear spray, energy drink cans with false bottoms, and an undisclosed amount of Canadian currency.
Three people were arrested. A 40- and 38-year-old women and a 42-year-old man, all from Portage, were charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking. All have been released from custody to appear in court at a later date.
