Lead foot proves costly for driver transporting marijuana

A man caught in a speed trap on Highway 6 Sept. 20 is facing more than just a traffic fine after Lundar RCMP discovered 2,000 grams of marijuana in his vehicle.

The car was stopped going northbound at a speed of 132 kilometres per hour in a 100 kilometre per hour zone and the driver produced a burnt marijuana cigarette when police told him they smelled marijuana in the vehicle. He was arrested and a search uncovered just over 2,000 grams of marijuana in vacuum-sealed packages as well as some Canadian currency.
