A traffic stop on Highway 6 Friday afternoon led to the seizure of 50 lbs. of marijuana.
RCMP were patrolling the highway about 14 kilometres north of Pisew Falls when a vehicle passed an unmarked police car at a high rate of speed.
The driver was pulled over and an odour of marijuana became evident to the officer. Police seized 50 lbs. of marijuana and $1,750 in cash from the vehicle.
Dawn Perzylo, 53, of Thompson has been charged and remains in custody pending a court appearance in Thompson on Tuesday.
RCMP believe the drugs were destined for Thompson for the purpose of trafficking.
