A man and woman from Winnipeg are behind bars after Selkirk RCMP found weapons, drugs, and other items in a car.

On Friday evening, Mounties were told about a suspicious vehicle on Highway 404 just east of Ferry Road in the Rural Municipality of St. Clements. A man and woman were associated with it, officers said.

Police got there and found the pair, authorities said, and further investigation showed the vehicle was unregistered.

When Mounties searched the car, a handgun and other weapons were found alongside ammunition, cash, leg shackles, 13 grams of cocaine, prescription medication and drug gear, RCMP said.

Both suspects face several drug and firearm-related charges.

RCMP said officers are still investigating.
