Norway House traffic stop leads Manitoba RCMP to wanted man, bag of pills

The RCMP in Norway House seized a backpack full of ecstasy pills and more than $2,500 in cash during a traffic stop Sunday afternoon.

Police said they pulled over a vehicle on Highway 373 in the northern Manitoba community when they determined it was unregistered and being driven by a woman, 21, without a valid licence.

Further investigation led police to determine that a 20-year-old passenger was breaching conditions of a recent release order, and that he was the subject of an outstanding warrant.
