RCMP in Cross Lake have made a drug bust for the second time in less than a week.
Last Saturday evening, RCMP in Cross Lake conducted a traffic stop after spotting a quad with two occupants being driven erratically through the community. The occupants were not wearing helmets and not obeying road safety signs.
The 33-year-old driver, a resident of Cross Lake, was arrested for Impaired Operation of a Motor Vehicle.
A further search of the vehicle led to the discovery of 42 grams of cocaine and a sum of Canadian Currency. Police also seized a case of beer from the quad.
The accused is facing charges of Impaired Operation of a Motor Vehicle, Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking, Possession of Property Obtained by Crime, and Resisting Arrest.
He was released on a Promise to Appear and will appear in court at a later date.
