RCMP seize drugs, cash in Trail
On March 13, at 8:35 p.m., a Trail and Greater District RCMP officer was conducting a patrol when he spotted a blue 1999 Chevrolet Silverado truck allegedly make an illegal left hand turn onto Hwy 3B from Old Waneta Road in Trail, according to RCMP Sgt. Mike Wicentowich.
“The officer detained the truck roadside and began an investigation,” Wicentowich said.
“The 41-year-old Greenwood man could not produce a valid BC Driver’s License to the investigating officer. A second RCMP officer attended and observed a small vial containing a suspected illicit drug inside the vehicle.
“The investigating officer arrested the man for Possession of a Controlled Substance contrary to Section 4(1) of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. The officers searched the vehicle incidental to the arrest and seized approximately $3,800 in cash, 26 grams of suspected cocaine and seven grams of suspected heroin. The matter is still under investigation.”
Trail RCMP will be pursuing criminal charges against the 41-year-old Greenwood man.
