Traffic stop leads to drug seizure
On Saturday, October 7, two members of the Cranbrook RCMP were conducting speed enforcement on Highway 3/93 just north of Cranbrook when they pulled a vehicle over travelling in excess of 130 k/ph.
A 29-year-old male was the only occupant in the vehicle and a search of the vehicle located over four kilograms of packaged marijuana with an estimated street value of $16,000.
The driver of the car, a resident of Calgary, was arrested and later released pending a court appearance in Cranbrook Provincial Court on charges of Possession of a Controlled for the Purposes of Trafficking.
