A five-month investigation by the Manitoba RCMP has resulted in charges against six people believed to be involved in a street gang drug trafficking network.
The investigation, dubbed Project Derelict, began in July when officers discovered a drug trafficking network operated by the Manitoba Warrior Street Gang, which was believed to be supplying northern communities with cocaine.
Officers conducted a traffic stop on highway six just over a month ago, where they arrested a full patch member of the gang and three others, while seizing 84 grams of cocaine which was en route to Easterville.
A subsequent search of a home in Headingley uncovered a cocaine station and press, along what packing materials and a firearm.
The investigation is still ongoing, and two of the suspects remain in RCMP custody.
Among those released were two residents of The Pas, who face charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking.
