Drugs, fake identification seized in vehicle search
The occupants of a vehicle who became unnerved when a police officer approached had plenty to make them nervous — fake ID and illicit drugs.
Langley RCMP arrested an 18-year-old woman from Surrey who was behind the wheel of a car parked in the 20100 block of 56 Avenue at about 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 20.
Her companion, an 18-year-old man, gave police his name but couldn’t produce any identification.
The officer smelled marijuana, and both occupants were arrested for possession of a controlled substance.
When police searched the vehicle, they found a man’s wallet with identification that suggested the passenger had not been truthful about his name.
With the help of a sniffer dog, police discovered powder cocaine, rock cocaine, and heroin stuffed down the front of the passenger’s pants. A small amount of loose, fresh marijuana was located in the centre console.
Police found almost $1,000 in cash, four cellphones and fake ID in a wallet and purse in the vehicle. All were seized.
The driver was released from custody.
Police will recommend a charge of fraud for the fake identification.
The Langley teen was held in custody and faces possible charges of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, obstructing a peace officer, and two counts of breach of probation.
