Winnipeg police arrested four people in two separate drug busts Thursday.

On Kate Street, police found a number of items including:
- A sawed-off .410 bore shotgun with ammunition.
- A can of bear spray.
- A machete.
- 27.9 grams of methamphetamine (valued at about $4,000).

Valentina Monkman, 27, Joseph Richard, 20, and Markus Schinkel, 47, were all arrested and face a number of charges.
On Pritchard Avenue, police found 3.5 ounces of cocaine (about $7,000 worth), 6.75 grams of crack cocaine (about $300 worth), one ounce of "cutting agent" and U.S. currency. Police believe it's linked to gang activity.
