“First vehicle stop of the day yields a few people attending Estevan to sell their wares. Meth and other drugs seized and two in custody,” the EPS said.

The traffic stop occurred at around 9 a.m. 

The suspects are a 35-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman, both from the Regina area. The charges have not been laid, but the man and the woman are expected to be charged with possession and the purpose of trafficking and possession of a weapon dangerous to the public. 

Names cannot be released until charges are laid. 

A total of 151.9 grams of meth and a small amount of marijuana were seized. Also found in the vehicle were dimebags, needles and scales. One of the items found in the vehicle was a police-style expandable baton with handcuffs.

"It's quite concerning. We're seeing this quantity of drugs coming into the community ... for trafficking purposes in our community." 

The Mercury will have more information when it becomes available.
