A traffic stop in God’s Lake Narrows, Man., led police to the seizure of weapons, liquor and drugs Monday night.

Police said they pulled over a vehicle in the community around 10:15 p.m., when an officer noticed a gun in the back seat while talking to the driver.

The driver, police said, turned out to be the subject of two arrest warrants, and was under a firearms prohibition.

The 28-year-old Stony Mountain man was arrested, a search of the vehicle turned up two rifles and ammunition, 31 bottles of liquor, bear spray, and pills which testing confirmed to contain fentanyl.

RCMP said they will continue to work with First Nations communities — like God’s Lake Narrows — where by-laws prohibit the sale and possession of alcohol — and will continue to make enforcement a priority.
