Man facing drug charges following traffic stop

A 30-year-old Prince George man is facing several charges following a traffic stop in the city Monday.

At about 8:30 p.m., frontline officers with the Prince George RCMP executed a traffic stop on Continental Way in the BCR Industrial Site.  The vehicle did not have active insurance. 

Further investigation led officers to detain the driver as part of a drug trafficking investigation.  A search of the vehicle located a large amount of uncut cocaine and cutting agent.  The vehicle was seized as part of the investigation.

A search warrant was obtained for a residence on the 2000-block of Central Street East.  Search of the residence found a large amount of cash, suspected heroin, drug trafficking paraphernalia and an assault style rifle with a prohibited magazine.

The 30-year-old man from Prince George was later released pending further investigation and charge approval from the Federal Prosecution Service of Canada.
