Three drivers are facing drug charges after RCMP stopped two vehicles in Salmon Arm. At approximately 1 a.m., on Friday, Sept. 25, police stopped a vehicle travelling on 30th Street NE.

A subsequent search of the vehicle turned up vacuum-sealed bags of marijuana, cocaine packaged for sale, steroids and Canadian currency. The driver was a 29-year-old woman from Chilliwack. The police investigation is continuing.

Then, that evening at 7 p.m., police stopped a vehicle on Okanagan Avenue. A search located cocaine packaged for sale, marijuana and prescription medication including Percocet, and morphine capsules.

Two men from Salmon Arm were arrested at the scene and will be facing criminal charges related to drug trafficking.
