Two homes in the upscale Winnipeg neighbourhood of Bridgwater Forest were part of a police raid into an investigation surrounding cocaine trafficking.

Police executed search warrants March 1 at two homes in the south Winnipeg neighbourhood, along with a home in Garden City.

The investigation into illegal trafficking of the drugs began in January, say police.

Officers seized:

  • 2 kilograms of cocaine (estimated street value $120,000)
  • 9 kilograms of cutting agent
  • $215,000 in cash
  • Loaded .45 cal handgun
  • Money counters, vacuum sealers, scales and packaging material
  • 3 vehicles valued at $100,000

Police arrested four men and one woman between the ages of 21 and 31. All five suspects, who haven’t been identified, face numerous drug-related and weapons charges. They have each been released on a promise to appear.
