WINNIPEG - Mounties believe they have dismantled an outlaw motorcycle gang in Winnipeg.

Officers say they have arrested 11 people, including the entire Winnipeg chapter of the Rock Machine biker club.

The accused face various charges related to drug and firearms trafficking in Manitoba.

RCMP say officers executed several search warrants Wednesday and seized drugs, guns, cash and a sports car.

Some pipe bombs and dynamite were also discovered at one location, resulting in the temporary evacuation of nearby homes and businesses.

Police say the investigation, dubbed Operation Dilemma, began last summer and involved more than 140 officers.
