Four men are in custody after Winnipeg police pulled over an SUV with an obstructed licence plate and found a treasure trove of weapons.
The SUV was travelling northbound on Watt Street around 12:40 a.m. on Wednesday when it was pulled over by police, who saw a hatchet in the vehicle.
A search of the SUV led to the seizure of not only the hatchet, but a knife, brass knuckles, two large machetes, a stun gun, a loaded sawed-off 12-gauge shotgun, numerous rounds of ammunition, and three masks.
The four suspects are facing more than 60 weapons-related charges between them.
Pierre Flett, 31, of Winnipeg; Roger Clint Genaille, 23, of no fixed address; Jason Hay, 35, of Beausejour, and Christopher Anthony Pirart, 32, also of Beausejour, are all in custody.
