Early Saturday morning, at approximately 2:30 a.m., members of the Trail Crime Reduction Unit arrested a 32-year-old male for possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.

The male was stopped in a vehicle by Crime Reduction Unit members shortly after leaving a local bar.

Approximately four grams of Cocaine and $490 in cash was seized during the suspect’s arrest.

RCMP warns of cheque scam

Salmo RCMP have been receiving complaints regarding companies sending mail to local residents hiring for a “Customer Service Evaluator” position.

A cheque is enclosed in the letter for several thousand dollars and recipients are asked to go purchase products at various stores.

Police have made calls to the different companies listed at the top of the letters and representatives have not answered police questions about the position or company.

Police are reminding the public to be vigilant when receiving unsolicited mail asking people to cash cheques for large sums of money, these types of requests are usually frauds.
