On July 1st at 4:00 AM members of the Sandy Bay RCMP Detachment along with the “F” Division Relief Team were assisting the public in a residential area in Sandy Bay, Saskatchewan. Local citizens pointed out a vehicle that did not belong in the area.
While checks were being made on the driver a male passenger exited the vehicle and ran off into the bush. The female driver was arrested for failing to follow a court order while other passengers were detained for investigational purposes. As a result of the investigation 20 grams of crack cocaine and other items consistent with the trafficking of controlled substances were located and seized by police. The detained passengers were released a short time after. Around 7:30 AM the male passenger turned himself in to the Sandy Bay RCMP Detachment.
As a result of the investigation Sandy Bay RCMP have charged:
- 35 year old Amanda BEAR from Pelican Narrows with Possession for the Purposes of Trafficking Cocaine, Sec 5(2) CDSA, and 2 counts of Failing to comply with Recog, Sec 145(3) CC.
- 25 year old Michael THOMAS from Pelican Narrows with Intimidation, Sec 423(1)(a) CC, and Failing to comply with Probation, Sec 733.1(1) CC.
