Three Charged. Drugs, Taser, Money Seized During Traffic Stop Near Maidstone

Police arrested three people last week on numerous criminal charges, including identity fraud and drug possession.

Near Maidstone on August 4th, around 4:45 p.m., a Saskatchewan RCMP Roving Traffic Unit officer stopped an eastbound vehicle on Highway 16 for a license check. In the vehicle was a male driver (and male passenger) who could not provide a driver’s license. A female driver pulled up in a second vehicle to provide the license, this was when the officer suspected the occupants may be in possession of drugs. Police also found identity documents matching the description of the male driver, showing the driver’s license the man originally provided did not belong to him. As a result, the occupants were detained, and then eventually arrested.

Both vehicles were searched and the following items were found seized:

– 36 grams of crack cocaine

– 2 pounds of illegal dried cannabis

– A taser

– Approximately $3,000.00 in Canadian currency

– A functioning digital scale

– Five cellular phones

– A vacuum sealer with several unused vacuum-sealed bags
