Winnipeg police have charged two people after an attempted traffic stop turned up a loaded gun and drugs.

Police spotted a vehicle speeding on westbound Chief Peguis Trail at around 8:45 p.m. on Monday and tried to pull the driver over. The vehicle slowed down but didn’t stop as it continued into a back lane on Litz Place.

The passenger and driver took off and ran on foot, while the passenger tried to secure a satchel against his body consistent with being armed.

A gun and pills were thrown during the pursuit, and the two suspects were taken into custody.

Officers seized:

  • A loaded 9 mm handgun with an obliterated serial number
  • Magazine with ammunition
  • Percocet pills (estimated street value of $1,400)
  • Crack cocaine (estimated street value of $100)
  • 2 cell phones
  • $485 Canadian currency

Samuel Kifia Andom, 25, and Royce Anthony James Boycle, 27, both of Winnipeg, have been charged with multiple offences.

They remain in custody.
