Charges related to firearms and drugs stayed against two Fort St. John men

Provincial Crown counsel has stayed charges against two Fort St. John men after RCMP seized guns, drugs, and money from a Prince George motel room earlier this year – as reported by the Prince George Citizen.

19-year-old Trevor Christopher Ernest Loe and 29-year-old Dominik Teale each were facing six firearms charges and one count each of possession for the purpose of trafficking and possession of stolen property under $5,000.

The duo was arrested on January 22nd after RCMP showed up at the motel located on Highway 16 West – acting on a tip.

At the motel, RCMP found three handguns, which were reported stolen from Abbotsford last October, drugs including crack cocaine and ecstasy pills, and a large amount of money.

Police also said at the time that a search of a car associated to the two turned up property which was believed to have been stolen in Fort St. John.

No reason for the decision was given during a brief hearing in Prince George on Tuesday.
