Thompson RCMP Make Drug Bust

RCMP Manitoba

WINNIPEG – In the early evening hours of Wednesday, November 29, 2017, Thompson RCMP executed a search warrant under the Criminal Code of Canada and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act at a residence located on Rainbow Crescent in the community.

Police located and seized approximately nine ounces of cocaine, various drug paraphernalia items and a small quantity of Canadian currency.

Police arrested two males at the scene, a 19-year-old and 16-year-old youth who are both from Thompson, and later released them on court imposed conditions for a January court date in Thompson. They will face charges of Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking and Trafficking in a Controlled Substance.

Those who produce and traffic illicit drugs destroy lives, homes, and communities. The RCMP remains fully committed to enforcing laws against illicit drugs to their fullest extent.

Thompson RCMP continues to investigate.
