The RCMP made a sizeable drug bust on the Trans-Canada Highway near Maple Creek that includes meth and cocaine.
On July 6th, police spotted a pick up east bound on the Number one with an obstructed license plate. Police decided to stop the vehicle.
After searching it, police uncovered 954 grams of methamphetamine, 337 grams of cocaine, some marijuana, and cash.
33 year old Vasco Kalala and 25 year old Emmany Kayembe have been charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking, and possession of stolen property. Both are from Calgary, and both will appear in provincial court in Maple Creek in August.
“Investigation determined these drugs originated in Calgary and were destined for the Regina area,” says S/Sgt. Chad McLeod, a district commander with Combined Traffic Services Saskatchewan (CTSS) in a news release. . “CTSS and RTU officers conduct patrols all over Saskatchewan. They are keeping our roads safe – but they’re often helping keep our communities safe too, because they are specially-trained to watch for signs of a travelling criminal.
