RCMP members located the driver, who was unconscious in the driver’s seat of a running vehicle. The man was prohibited from driving and did not have a valid drivers licence. A drug recognition expert arrested and evaluated the driver.
Members conducted a search of the vehicle and found a “significant amount of illicit drugs, stolen property and several weapons,” the release said.
The driver was arrested for Impaired Operation of a Motor Vehicle, Prohibited Driving, Possession of Weapons for a Dangerous Purpose and Possession of Property Obtained by Crime. He was later released by a Police Undertaking when sober.
