Winnipeg police have arrested a woman as part of a drug trafficking investigation.

Police conducted a traffic stop on the suspect Thursday near Portage Avenue and Edmonton Street, where the woman was arrested without incident.


Officers seized six grams of crack cocaine worth an estimated $600, approximately $300 in cash and a cell phone.

Later in the day, police executed a search warrant at the suspect’s home in the 500 block of Manitoba Avenue, where they seized:

  • Approximately 73 grams of cocaine (worth $7,300)
  • Over 90 Tylenol 3 tablets (worth $455)
  • Contaminated digital scale

A 32-year-old Winnipeg woman is facing several charges and was released to appear in court. As she has yet to be formally charged, her name wasn’t released.
