A man and a woman are fac­ing charges af­ter two re­lated in­ci­dents in Yar­mouth – one of which in­volved a search of a ve­hi­cle for al­leged drugs and the other in­volved a per­son al­legedly be­com­ing con­fronta­tional and threat­en­ing to flat­ten tires on a tow truck.

On Oct. 26, mem­bers of Yar­mouth/Clare RCMP Street Crime En­force­ment Unit (SCEU) lo­cated a ve­hi­cle that was head­ing to Yar­mouth, re­port­edly with drugs in­side. Po­lice fol­lowed the ve­hi­cle to a home on Main Street and ar­rested the driver.

Ac­cord­ing to an RCMP me­dia re­lease, when po­lice searched the ve­hi­cle a sig­nif­i­cant amount of co­caine was seized. The RCMP say that some of the co­caine was pack­aged in small amounts for in­di­vid­ual sale. The driver of the ve­hi­cle was taken to jail.

The RCMP say while the search was be­ing con­ducted by po­lice, a man and a sec­ond woman came out of the home where the ve­hi­cle was parked. The man was yelling at po­lice and was be­ing con­fronta­tional, ac­cord­ing to po­lice. The RCMP claim the man’s be­hav­iour es­ca­lated to a point where he grabbed a rake, held it over his head, and threat­ened to flat­ten the tires on the tow truck that had been called to re­move the ve­hi­cle from the prop­erty. He was ar­rested and trans­ported to jail as well.

The driver of the car, a 44-yearold woman from Bar­ring­ton, is fac­ing a charge of Pos­ses­sion of Co­caine for the Pur­pose of Traf­fick­ing. The 39-year-old man from Yar­mouth who was in the home is be­ing charged with As­sault­ing a Peace Of­fi­cer and Ob­struc­tion.

Both peo­ple were re­leased from cus­tody later that day and have been sched­uled to at­tend Yar­mouth Provin­cial Court on Dec. 3. Charges had not yet been filed with the court at the time this story was writ­ten prior to our press dead­line, there­fore no names had been re­leased.
