Fraser Lake traffic stop results in drug arrests

A traffic stop in Fraser Lake Monday resulted in police arresting two people on drug charges.

When police stopped the vehicle for a traffic violation they discovered the driver was prohibited from operating a motor vehicle and was arrested.

During the investigation, police discovered a significant amount of drugs in the vehicle. As a result, both the driver and passenger were arrested. Police seized, what is believed to be methamphetamine and cocaine as well as a large amount of cash and drug paraphernalia.

Both men were held in custody pending a court appearance but have since been released on a promise to appear for a future court date. The investigation is ongoing. 

While we are working hard at keeping our communities safe during the current wildfire situation here we remain vigilant with respect to our commitment to uphold the law said Sgt Jason Slater, NCO i/c Fraser Lake Detachment.
