Seatbelt faux pas in Nelson nets possible drug charges

A routine traffic stop on May 18 led the Nelson Police Department to make a drug seizure from a local man.

A routine traffic stop on May 18 led the Nelson Police Department to make a drug seizure from a local man.

While patrolling on Stanley Street an officer noticed a passenger riding in a vehicle without wearing his seat belt. Upon stopping the vehicle, police developed grounds to launch a drug investigation.

The passenger ended up being arrested for possession of marijuana and further investigation resulted in the officer discovering a number of pills believed to be morphine and numerous small plastic bags containing an unidentified powdered substance.

“The amount of drugs located in the possession of the male led the officer to believe that the drugs were destined for sale,” says a NPD news release.

The man may now be facing numerous drug charges including possession and trafficking allegations.
