Cpl. Madonna Saunderson said RCMP are not going to release the exact amount of drugs, but it was significant enough to recommend charges for the purpose of trafficking.

A 30-year-old male and a 25-year-old female were arrested on Friday, and the male was released on a promise to appear in court at a later date. The female was released with no charges.

Anyone with information on this or any other crime is asked to call the Prince Rupert RCMP at 250-624-2136 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
