The Southwest Booster - - Front Page -

For the sec­ond time in 2019 Swift Current res­i­dents can dis­pose of haz­ardous and out dated items from their homes at a House­hold Haz­ardous Waste Col­lec­tion Day.

This Satur­day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., the City of Swift Current In­fra­struc­ture & Op­er­a­tions Di­vi­sion will be hold­ing a fall ver­sion of their House­hold Haz­ardous Waste Col­lec­tion Day.

The col­lec­tion area will be lo­cated at the City Land­fill, near the front en­trance for ease of ac­cess and safe dis­posal. Host­ing this event at the land­fill con­trols some of the as­so­ci­ated costs and has al­lowed for the City to pro­vide an ad­di­tional House­hold Haz­ardous Waste Day this year.

Res­i­dents are wel­come to bring haz­ardous house­hold items for free dis­posal on Septem­ber 14th, in­clud­ing items such as:

- Chem­i­cals,

- Sol­vents,

- Old paint (re­us­able paint can go di­rectly to SARCAN),

- Aerosol con­tain­ers,

- Glue,

- Bat­ter­ies (also ac­cepted at the City Re­cy­cle De­pot year-round),

- Pes­ti­cides,

- Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals,

- Flu­o­res­cent light bulbs.

This ser­vice is avail­able to house­holds only so items from busi­nesses and farms will not be ac­cepted.

A traf­fic stop of a ve­hi­cle with ex­ces­sive wind­shield dam­age re­sulted in a se­ries of drug re­lated charges against the driver.

At ap­prox­i­mately 11 a.m. on Septem­ber 5, a po­lice officer from the Saskatchew­an RCMP Rov­ing Traf­fic Unit stopped an east­bound ve­hi­cle on High­way 1, west of Swift Current. Dur­ing the course of the traf­fic stop, the sim­ple equip­ment vi­o­la­tion turned into a drug traf­fick­ing and pos­ses­sion in­ves­ti­ga­tion, due to sev­eral fac­tors that will be presented as part of the court process.

A sub­se­quent search of the ve­hi­cle re­sulted in the seizure of 130 grams of cocaine pack­aged for dis­tri­bu­tion, Cana­dian cur­rency, drug pack­ag­ing ma­te­ri­als, and a cell­phone. The ve­hi­cle was also seized.

Jacob Johnathon Mclauch­lan, a 23-year-old male from Regina, has been charged with pos­ses­sion of cocaine for the pur­pose of traf­fick­ing and pos­ses­sion of pro­ceeds of crime un­der $5,000.

Mclauch­lan will be mak­ing his first court ap­pear­ance in Swift Current Pro­vin­cial Court on Nov. 13.
