Manitoba RCMP executed a search warrant at a residence on 6th Street NE at around 11:35 p.m., where they seized:

  • A loaded shotgun
  • Ammunition
  • Cocaine
  • Crack cocaine
  • Methamphetamine
  • Drug trafficking paraphernalia
  • Brass knuckles

Police determined the loaded shotgun was stolen, and the barrel had been sawed off.
