Moose Jaw police said officers seized various amounts of drugs, drug paraphernalia and $2,000 of Canadian currency along with an extendable baton.

The woman was then charged with possession of cocaine, methamphetamine and morphine for the purpose of trafficking, as well as possession of a prohibited weapon and possession of property obtained by crime, Moose Jaw police said.

She was also charged with flight from police and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, police said.

Moose Jaw police said inside the stolen vehicle, officers also seized a gun, adding the suspect is also facing several firearms-related offences.
