GRANDE PRAIRIE, AB – RCMP have charged two people with drug and weapons offences, after receiving a suspicious persons complaint.

On Dec. 5, 2019, just after 1:30 a.m., RCMP received a call from a resident in the rural area of Sexsmith. The caller reported an unfamiliar car and two people at the end of his driveway. One occupant had approached the caller’s residence requesting help, saying the car was stuck. Feeling this was suspicious, the resident contacted the RCMP for assistance.

Police attended and located the car stuck in the ditch. Police identified the male and female occupants of the vehicle. Further investigation led police to locate 52 grams of methamphetamine, 18 grams of cocaine, 30 grams of cannabis, a loaded shotgun, ammunition, and brass knuckles.
