Meth traffickers appear in Rossland court

Two people appeared in Rossland court on Monday after police caught them with 20 grams of meth and two grams of black tar heroin.

Two Fruitvale residents appeared in Rossland court Monday after police uncovered approximately 20 grams of crystal methamphetamine and two grams of black tar heroin in their vehicle.

At about 8 p.m. Friday night, the Trail RCMP General Duty Section pulled over a vehicle, which was travelling from Rossland to Trail. The three occupants of the vehicle were arrested for possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking.

Numerous charges including possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking, possession of drugs, breach of undertaking, and breach of probation have been recommended against two of the occupants of the vehicle.

These two persons are known to the police, said the press release, and were remanded in custody prior to their appearance in Rossland court on Monday.

Both were released on bail on Monday, and are scheduled to appear in court again on Oct. 22.

Their vehicle was towed from the scene and issued an inspection order as it was deemed unsuitable for highway travel.

The RCMP press release stated, this was a proactive police investigation taken on by local uniformed members and is a significant seizure of crystal methamphetamine for this area.
