A man and a teenage boy are facing a number of gun-related charges after Regina police pulled over a vehicle as part of an investigation Friday morning.
Around 5:35 a.m., a police dog noticed a vehicle driving in a suspicious manner in the 1600 block of Toronto Street. Officers eventually pulled it over around 8th Avenue and Rose Street.
When police searched the vehicle, they discovered a loaded gun, ammunition and a small quantity of methamphetamine.
The two people inside the vehicle — a 36-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy — were then taken into custody.
Both suspects are now facing an array of gun-related charges — including possession of a weapon for a purpose dangerous to public peace and possession of a firearm or ammunition contrary to prohibition.
The 36-year-old also faces one count of possession of a scheduled substance for being found with methamphetamine.
Both suspects appeared in court Friday afternoon.
Police are still investigating if these suspects are related to an “assault with a weapon,” a short distance away earlier in the morning.
The investigation is ongoing.
