Traf­fic stop leads to drug charges

Prince Albert Daily Herald - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT -

A dis­tur­bance call led to a hand­ful of drug charges for a ve­hi­cle full of peo­ple early Thurs­day morn­ing.

At 12:15 a.m., po­lice were dis­patched to the 600 Block of 13 Street West for a dis­tur­bance. By the time they ar­rived, the sus­pect had left in a blue car. Of­fi­cers lo­cated the ve­hi­cle on 15 Street West and ac­ti­vated lights and sirens.

Of­fi­cers ap­proached the ve­hi­cle, which had mul­ti­ple oc­cu­pants. They talked to the driver and no­ticed he was hold­ing a mar­i­juana bag­gie. Ev­ery­one in the ve­hi­cle was ar­rested and searched. A fe­male oc­cu­pant was found with sev­eral small bags of metham­phetamine. The 31-year-old from P.A. was charged with pos­ses­sion.

A male oc­cu­pant was found with a knife con­cealed in his belt area and sev­eral small bag­gies of what is sus­pected to be metham­phetamine, weigh­ing 0.4 grams in to­tal. The 18-year-old from Sandy Bay was charged with pos­ses­sion of metham­phetamine, pos­ses­sion of a weapon for a dan­ger­ous pur­pose and breach of a youth sen­tence or­der.

The ac­cused were due in court yes­ter­day.

The In­te­grated Street En­force­ment Team (ISET) has ar­rested one per­son and seized a gun from a res­i­dence in the 1600 block of 17 Street West.

On Septem­ber 12, at about 11:10 a.m., ISET ex­e­cuted a search war­rant on the res­i­dence. A .270 ri­fle and a large amount of am­mu­ni­tion was lo­cated.

A 39-year-old man from Prince Al­bert has been charged with seven firearm­sre­lated of­fences and once count of fail­ing to com­ply with a re­cog­ni­zance to not pos­sess firearms, ammo or other weapons.

ISET is made up of mem­bers of the RCMP and Prince Al­bert Po­lice Ser­vice.
