Traffic stop in Nanaimo yields drugs, cash, convict

Nanaimo Mounties discovered drugs cash and a man unlawfully at large from prison when they stopped a car on the weekend.

Police pulled the car over Friday at 7:24 p.m. at the intersection of Estevan and Brechin roads.

Passengers in the black 1988 Honda included Bryan Bosak, 30, who is serving weekends at Nanaimo Regional Correctional Centre for a fraud conviction. He was supposed to be back on the prison grounds at 6 p.m.

Bosak was arrested and held in custody over the weekend to appear in Nanaimo provincial court Monday.

The search turned up a small quantity of drugs and cash as well.

Investigators have also recommended charges of driving while prohibited and breach of undertaking against a Nanaimo man, 29, who is known to police.

He was released on a promise to appear in Nanaimo provincial court at a later date.

A third occupant of the car was released without charges and the investigation is continuing.
