Wrong licence plates lead to 'significant drug seizure' in Sicamous

Over 80 grams seized of suspected fentanyl, cocaine and meth
Sicamous RCMP seized over 80 grams of illegal drugs believed to consist of fentanyl, cocaine and meth during a traffic stop.

Police discovered a significant amount of illegal drugs that were being transported in a vehicle on July 5. 

A Sicamous officer noticed a Hyundai SUV driving on Rauma Avenue with licence plates registered to a different vehicle. The officer stopped the vehicle, citing the violation as the reason, and conducted a search of the SUV that resulted in the seizure of over 80 grams of illegal drugs suspected to consist of fentanyl, cocaine and methamphetamine. 

"Police located a drug scale, individually wrapped portions of drugs and other evidence to support the belief that the driver was trafficking in controlled substances," Sgt. Murray McNeil said in a media release. "This represents a significant drug seizure in the District of Sicamous which will impact the local drug trade."

The driver, a 38-year-old resident of Sicamous, was arrested and released from custody. RCMP are still investigating.
