CDSA in vehicle
On April 20th during routine evening patrols, a Kitimat RCMP officer observed a vehicle driving with no lights on. A traffic stop was performed and drug paraphernalia with drug residue was observed in the center console. The driver was detained and when he stepped out of the vehicle he dropped two bags of suspected cocaine to the driver’s seat. The driver and passenger were then arrested and additional drugs were located in the vehicle. Though the decriminalization of CDSA was approved and implemented at the end of January it is still illegal to have drugs in a motor vehicle within reach and as such the drugs were seized.
