A couple of suspected drug dealers got a lesson in what not to do if you’re transporting drugs.

On the evening of Nov. 12, RCMP Central Interior Traffic Services, based in Kamloops, with the assistance of the Chase Detachment, stopped a vehicle for speeding on Highway 1 at Chase.

During the stop, the officers noted the smell of marijuana coming from the rental vehicle.

The 43 year-old male driver and 23 year-old male passenger, both of Agassiz, were arrested for possession of marijuana under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. A subsequent search uncovered 27 pounds of the drug hidden in the hatch area.

The suspects were each released on a recognizance, and a recommendation for charges will be forwarded to Crown counsel.  The first court date is set for March 2014.
