Two arrested for crystal meth possession
Mounties arrested a Nanaimo man, 36, and a woman from Courtenay, 28, after they were allegedly caught with 170 grams of crystal methamphetamine Wednesday.
The arrests happened at about 9:45 p.m. after members with Nanaimo RCMP’s Property Crime Unit pulled over a newer model Cadillac in the Brooks Landing Mall parking lot, searched the car and found a small pouch containing the drug.
Police also discovered the woman was in breach of a previous court order, stemming from a possession of a controlled substance charge originating in Courtenay currently before the courts.
Police seized the car.
Both suspects were released on a promise to appear in Nanaimo provincial court June 5 to face recommended charges of one count each of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking. The woman also faces an additional recommended charge for breaching her curfew.
