A 30-year-old man faces several additional charges after being arrested by Manitoba First Nations Police earlier this week.

Officers were on patrol on the Sandy Bay First Nation on Wednesday when they noticed a suspect wanted on outstanding warrants. 

When the suspect resisted arrest, a taser was deployed to take him into custody.

After the man was arrested, police searched a bag that was in his possession, where they found a 12 inch machete, suspected meth, and other items that police say are consistent with drug trafficking. 

Besides the previous warrants for resisting arrest and failing to appear, Edmond Raymond Austin Spence now faces new charges of resisting arrest, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, and possession for the purpose of trafficking.
