Tuesday, August 8, 2017 @ 11:07 AM

Burns Lake, B.C. – Two Burns Lake males face a string  of charges  following a vehicle stop on the long weekend.

RCMP  say Members of the Fraser Lake detachment were on patrol along Highway 16 near Holy Cross Forest Service Road on Saturday when they spotted a vehicle that was traveling well under the posted speed limit.

As the police couldn’t see any obvious reason for the  vehicle’s slow speed,  they  had the driver pull over.

Once the vehicle was stopped, police observed evidence to suspect that the driver was impaired by alcohol. As police conducted an investigation of impaired driving, information was received from the Burns Lake RCMP of a recent stolen vehicle from their area. The description that was provided matched that of the vehicle that was currently stopped by the Fraser Lake RCMP.

During a search of the vehicle police found property which they believe to be stolen as well as a substantial amount of drugs. Psilocybin, commonly referred to as Magic Mushrooms as well as Marijuana were located inside the vehicle.

2 Burns Lake residents were arrested for the Possession of stolen property, Possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking and breaching conditions of a recognizance.
The Driver also received a 90 day IRP driving prohibition.

Both males were held in police custody and are scheduled to appear in Prince George Provincial Court on Tuesday August 9th. The police continue their investigation


No charge for the stolen vehicle??

    It will be possession of stolen property over $5000

      if the vehicle was worth over $5000 :-)
