On March 2, 2016 members of the Trans Canada East Traffic Services (TCETS) were conducting road safety checks in the area of Field BC.
One of the unit officers initiated a traffic stop with a suspected violator who was operating a Mitsubishi Outlander.
The officer immediately entered into a Controlled Drugs and Substances Act investigation which resulted in the seizure of over 4 kilograms of marijuana and 10 litres of high quality hash oil known commonly referred to as “Phoenix Tears.”
Two Alberta men ages 24 and 47 are scheduled to appear in Golden Provincial court on May 10.
Police believed the seized drugs hold an estimated street value of over half a million dollars.
“It is extremely rewarding knowing that we were able to keep these dangerous drugs from reaching the streets of our communities,” said Sgt. Rob Haney of TCETS.”
