A traffic stop in Portage la Prairie early Thursday led RCMP to come across a number of drugs, weapons and more than 15 bicycles.

Police stopped a vehicle on 8th Street NW at around 12:20 a.m. Officers seized 26 grams of methamphetamine, several prohibited weapons, and various drug paraphernalia.

Officers then turned their attention to a house on the same street, where they found an extensive list of stolen property, including a motorcycle, various electronics, other weapons and more drug-related paraphernalia.

Dexter Roulette, 33, faces numerous charges and remains in custody.

A 49-year-old woman from the RM of Dufferin and a 25-year-old woman from the RM of Portage la Prairie were also arrested and have been released on promises to appear.

RCMP continue to investigate.
