Three people have been arrested in Saskatoon after an investigation involving the RCMP Federal Serious and Organized Crime Unit and a provincial anti-gang unit.

On Friday, police seized cocaine, marijuana and a handgun, along with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Charges include possession for the purpose of trafficking cocaine, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and unauthorized possession of a firearm.

Two of the accused made a court appearance on Tuesday. The third accused will appear in court next month.

The RCMP was aided by the Saskatoon Combined Special Forces Enforcement Unit, a province-wide tast force designed to target criminal organizations in Saskatoon, Prince Albert and Regina.
