A man stopped by Thompson RCMP on foot patrol in a bar was arrested for drugs after a small bag of cocaine fell out of his headwear while he was talking to them.

Officers were in the Regal Beagle at the Burntwood Hotel around 12:25 a.m. Nov. 6 when they saw a 28-year-old man wearing a logo identifying him as a member or associate of a gang, in violation of Manitoba’s Liquor, Gaming and Cannabis Control Act.
