CORNWALLIS - RCMP have arrested two men from Windsor, Ontario who were transporting 60 kilograms of cannabis in their vehicle.
39 year-old Douglas Durham and 60 year-old Richard King were stopped in the RM of Cornwallis and a search of their vehicle led to the seizure of the illicit cannabis.
Both men have been charged with Possession for the Purpose of Distributing, Possession of Illicit Cannabis, Possession of over 30 grams, and Possession of Unstamped Cannabis and have been released for court scheduled in Brandon on August 8, 2019.
“While recreational cannabis is legal, this seizure shows that there is still illicit cannabis in our communities and police will continue to enforce this,” said S/Sgt. Kyle McFadyen of “D” Division Traffic Services. “The only way to know your cannabis is safe is to purchase cannabis through approved distributors as outlined in the federal Cannabis Act and the provincial Liquor, Gaming and Cannabis Control Act.”
