A 45 year-old male and 24 year-old female, both of Regina, are facing numerous drug and weapons charges after a police investigation on Friday, July 8, 2016.
At approximately 2:45 p.m. on Friday, July 8, 2016, police spotted a vehicle southbound on Broad Street at 8th Avenue. The driver of the vehicle had warrants as a disqualified driver and was on court-ordered conditions to submit to search of his person, vehicle or residence (up to three times a month). Police pulled the vehicle over in the 2200 block of Cornwall Street and took the driver into custody on his traffic warrants. A female passenger was also taken into custody at this time. The subsequent search of the vehicle located a substance believed to be cocaine, methamphetamines, steroids, packaging and drug paraphernalia (including seven cell phones), ammunition, knives, a rifle, and a pellet gun. Police also seized a quantity of Canadian currency, believed to be associated to drug trafficking. Further investigation led to charges against the two suspects.
