NEWS RELEASE · 26th September 2012
A 20 yr old woman and a 22 yr old man will have charges of drug trafficking forwarded after they were stopped for speeding.
"This was the third drug seizure we had made over the weekend. Charges will be forwarded in this incident and the other two are still under investigation. CRU is committed to routing out drug traffickers from Terrace," says Cst James Lauriault, CRU member.
The Terrace RCMP CRU (Crime Reduction Unit) pulled a grey 2001 Nissan Sentra over for traveling over the posted speed limit in the 4800 block of Hwy 16 West on the evening of September 22.
The smell of marihuana lead police to arresting the two occupants and searching the vehicle. Police seized a substance believed to be cocaine packaged in a manner consistent with trafficking.
An amount of marihuana and drug paraphernalia were also seized from one of the persons and the vehicle.
