A man was arrested earlier this week due to a warrant from the Weyburn Police Service, and the subsequent investigation by the RCMP resulted in a number of other charges.
This past Monday, RCMP from the Gravelbourg detachment performed what they called a proactive roadside check on a vehicle that was parked on the side of Highway 13. Checking the identity of the driver, who was the sole occupant of the vehicle, the officers determined he was wanted on a warrant that had been issued by the WPS.
The RCMP say further investigation resulted in the discovery and seizure of just over three grams of a substance believed to be meth, along with a sawed-off rifle and drug trafficking paraphernalia.
The driver of the vehicle, 42-year-old John Campbell from Assiniboia, was taken into custody. He has been charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking, possession of a prohibited firearm, and seven counts of failing to comply with an undertaking.
Campbell made his first court appearance in Moose Jaw Provincial Court on Wednesday.
