Another drug seizure made in Terrace

POLICE in Terrace are forwarding information they hope will lead to drug trafficking charges being laid against two people.

They say narcotics were seized after a vehicle was stopped for speeding.

A 20-year-old woman and a 22-year-old man were in the car.

This was the third drug seizure we had made over the weekend. Charges will be forwarded in this incident and the other two are still under investigation. CRU is committed to routing out drug traffickers from Terrace, says Cst James Lauriault, CRU member.

The Terrace RCMP CRU (Crime Reduction Unit) pulled a grey 2001 Nissan Sentra over for traveling over the posted speed limit in the 4800 block of Hwy 16 West on the evening of September 22.

The smell of marijuana lead police to arresting the two occupants and searching the vehicle.

Police say they seized a substance believed to be cocaine packaged in a manner consistent with trafficking.

An amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia were also seized from one of the persons and the vehicle, police say.
