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 RCMP member activated his emergency equipment and initiated a vehicle stop.  The female driver who was the only occupant in the vehicle was not able to produce proof of insurance for the vehicle and the vehicle was not registered.

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.
