  • Print

Two men appeared in court Thursday in Thompson facing drug charges after two bags of marijuana were found on the pair during a traffic stop on the previous day when RCMP officers smelled marijuana in the vehicle.

Nelson House RCMP had pulled over a vehicle with five occupants around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday to conduct a traffic stop near the junction of Highway 620 and 391 near Nelson House First Nation.

After detecting a strong odour of marijuana coming from the vehicle, officers arrested the five people and found two passengers were in possession of the drug. About 58 grams of marijuana in two bags of marijuana was seized.

Gillies Solomon Thomas, 27, of Leaf Rapids and Garrick Jeorge Moody, 20, of Nelson House have each been charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking (cannabis).

The driver and the other two passengers were released unconditionally.
