WINNIPEG -- A routine RCMP traffic stop Tuesday morning resulted in the largest seizure of ecstasy ever in Manitoba.
Shortly after 1:30 a.m. local time, near Falcon Lake, Man., Mounties stopped a B.C. man and woman in a motor home with British Columbia licence plates.
Falcon Lake is about 140 kilometres east of Winnipeg, near the Ontario border.
Police searched the vehicle and found about one million ecstasy tablets with an estimated street value of $20 million.
The driver, a man identified as Yan Kit (Phil) Cheung, 43, and his female passenger, Sok Wai (Gertrude) Cheong, 34, both from Vancouver, are in police custody and each faces charges under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.
