Three people from Portage la Prairie are facing drug trafficking charges after police executed two search warrants this week.

RCMP searched a home in Portage on Thursday, October 15, and also carried out a related search warrant of a vehicle the following day.

With both warrants, police seized more than 200 grams of methamphetamine, some prescription pills, several knives, a bat, bear spray, several energy drink cans with false bottoms, and an undisclosed amount of Canadian currency.

Now facing drug trafficking charges are two women, aged 40 and 38, along with a 42-year-old man, all from Portage la Prairie.

All 3 have been released from custody to appear in court at a later date.
