Mounties in St. Paul say a Saddle Lake man is facing drug charges after police say he was found with over 20 grams of methamphetamine. The RCMP says on December 18th they were at a home in Saddle Lake that was under investigation for stolen property.
It was at the house where mounties spotted a vehicle they believe was involved in near-miss with a police car the day before. The RCMP says a man in the car took off on foot but was caught a short time later without any trouble.
Police say a search of the man and the car turned up 20 grams of meth as well as other controlled substances, around $900 and multiple guns and ammo. A 38-year-old man now faces a variety of charges including four counts of possession of a substance with the purpose of trafficking. He’ll stay in police care and see St. Paul Provincial Court on January 17th.
