On February 13th, 2011 at approximately 1:35 a.m., a member of the Leduc RCMP was conducting a patrol on 50th Street and Hwy 2A when he observed a vehicle traveling at a  slow rate of speed.  A query of the licence plate on the vehicle confirmed that the plate belonged to a different vehicle.

The female was placed under arrest and was searched before being placed in the police vehicle.   Police located 2 small clear baggies on the female’s person.  One believed to contain Crystal Methamphetamine and the other believed to contain cocaine.  A further search uncovered drug paraphernalia.

The female was also arrested for the possession of a controlled substance and taken into police custody.

A 26 yr old female from Edmonton, AB is facing the following charges:

  1. Possession of a Controlled Substance (x2)

In addition to the criminal charges, the female was issued the following violation:

  1. Fail to produce valid insurance

The female is scheduled to appear in Leduc Provincial Court on March 31, 2011 at 9:30 a.m.. The name of the female is not being released at this time as the information has not been sworn.
