Two 14-year-old boys are facing gun and drug trafficking charges after Saskatoon police stumbled on them during an unrelated call Wednesday afternoon.

Officers were at an apartment building in the 100-block of Avenue O South at roughly 2:20 p.m. CT when they came across two youth carrying backpacks.

A large bag of marijuana was sticking out of one of the boy’s hoodie pockets, according to police. A search turned up 2.1 pounds of marijuana, with some packaged individually in equal amounts.
