Saskatoon police say two people are facing drug charges after a months-long investigation by members of the guns and gangs unit.

Police said they stopped a Dodge Caravan on Highway 7 just west of the city on Oct. 25 as part of the investigation.

The van was thought to be transporting drugs from British Columbia to be sold in Saskatoon, officials said.

Police said there were three people in the van — a 21-year-old man, a 20-year-old woman and a one-year-old baby.

The pair are facing charges of possession of cannabis for the purpose of distribution and possession of the proceeds of crime.
