Wednesday's police activity in Morden is connected to another series of busts made on the same day in the province's capital city.
Two people were taken into custody by Morden police after officers, including the Regional Support Tactical Team, executed a pair of drug search warrants yesterday - one on Rampton Street and a second on Autumnwood Crescent.
Winnipeg Police Service's (WPS) Drug Enforcement Team, along with its Tactical Support Team, then executed a trio of search warrants on three homes and vehicles in that city, bringing another three people into custody.
According to a WPS news release, it's all part of a drug trafficking investigation that began in the fall when investigators learned the operation extended beyond city limits and into the Morden/Winkler area.
In total, over $600,000 worth of illicit drugs were seized, along with $50,000 in cash and loaded firearms.
The list includes:
2 prohibited handguns and ammunition
1 stun gun
1 kilogram of fentanyl (estimated street value of $500,000)
1 kilogram of cocaine (estimated street value of $100,000)
54 Xanax pills (estimated street value of $540)
$54,000 Canadian currency
drug packaging materials and
10 cellular devices
All accused were detained in custody.
