3 arrested in Winnipeg after guns, drugs found in taxi

Three people are behind bars after Winnipeg police found weapons and drugs in a taxi.

Sunday morning, officers pulled the car over at Sherbrook Street and Elgin Avenue, after seeing three people weren’t buckled in.

Police said one of the individuals had an active warrant of arrest.

When taking him out of the car, authorities said there was evidence of drug trafficking, so everyone was taken out of the taxi.
