While legalization of cannabis may be a few weeks away, Winnipeg police continue to make marijuana-related drug arrests.
On Tuesday, police seized 270 grams of marijuana, 30 grams of cannabis oil, 30 grams of magic mushrooms, 14 grams of cocaine, and around $3,000 in cash from a residence in the 500 block of Polson Avenue.
Kyle Joseph Kostiuk, 29, and Samantha Amy Larocque, 23, face a litany of drug charges, including possession for the purpose of trafficking and possession of proceeds of property obtained by crime under $5,000. They’ve both been detained at the Winnipeg Remand Centre.
A second woman, 26, faces the same drug charges but has been released on a promise to appear.
