St. Paul RCMP Arrest Three Suspects with Stolen Firearms and Drugs

St Paul Mounties have arrested three suspects with stolen fire arms and drugs

On January 2nd, 2020 around 2:45 AM St. Paul RCMP members were conducting patrols in the town of St. Paul near Lakeshore Drive. A member located two vehicles one of which matched the description of a vehicle that had fled from police the night before. The member attempted a traffic stop and both vehicles failed to stop.
