Winnipeg police arrested two people and seized an improvised gun on Sunday.
Security reported to police that the suspects were trying to open car doors in a parking lot in the 2400 block of McPhillips Street at around 10:45 p.m. Police, including Air 1 and the K9 unit, responded and began looking for the stolen vehicle that the suspects were driving.
Officers spotted the suspects near Swailes Avenue and Sinclair Street and arrested a 26-year-old man. A 26-year-old woman was arrested a short distance away by the K9 unit and was found to be in possession of pepper spray.
A search of the vehicle the suspects were driving turned up an improvised firing device (zip gun) and ammunition.
Both suspects face numerous charges, including failing to comply with a probation order.
Both of them remain in custody.
