Drug Investigation: C17-285846

On December 21, 2017, at approximately 9:45 a.m., Winnipeg Police were alerted by management to the existence of a possible drug lab located within a building in the 300 block of Kennedy St.

Arriving officers gained entrance to a vacated suite and discovered what appeared to be a clandestine drug lab. Equipment and a large quantity of chemicals located within the residence suggest the lab was likely being used to manufacture methamphetamine. The lab did not appear to be operational at the time of discovery.

Labs of this nature present a number of potential hazards including; fire, explosion and the presence of toxic chemicals. As a result, the Winnipeg Police Service Clandestine Lab Team was called out as well as various units from the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service, including Hazmat units.

These teams remained at the scene for the majority of the day and the lab was safely dismantled.

This investigation is continuing by members of the Clandestine Lab Team. No arrests have been made at this time.
