The Fort St. John RCMP Drug Section with the assistance of the Regional Traffic Sections, intercepted a significant quantity of cocaine, marijuana and pills.
On August 6th at approximately 10am, the Fort St. John RCMP conducted a vehicle stop with three occupants who were suspected of transporting the drugs from the Lower Mainland. The vehicle was stopped on the Alaska Highway just south of the Kiskatinaw Bridge. A search of the vehicle revealed close to one pound of cocaine, over 2 pounds of marijuana and a number of pills believed to be ecstacy.
The RCMP estimate the drugs had a street value of over $500,000.
A 20 year old female and two males, both age 20, are facing charges for possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking, possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking and the possession of ecstacy for the purpose of trafficking.
Both males have been remanded in custody until they appear before a judge next week. The female has been released on bail conditions.
