Man who hid machete in pants busted on weapons, meth charges say Winnipeg police
A Winnipeg man faces a slew of charges after he tried to pull a concealed machete on police Monday night.
Police said they stopped the man, who was acting suspiciously, near Furby Street and Bannatyne Avenue around 10:10 p.m.

When they tried to arrest him, police said he lifted his shirt and grabbed the handle of a hidden machete under his belt.
When police drew their weapons, the suspect put his hands up and was arrested.
In addition to the machete, a search turned up a spring-loaded knife, a digital scale, and 1.75 grams of meth.
