West Trail bust nets pound of pot

West Trail man will appear in Rossland Provincial Court May 10 facing charges of possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking.

A charge of possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking is being recommended against a 22-year-old man who was arrested at a West Trail home Tuesday at about 9 p.m.

He has been released on conditions to appear in Rossland Provincial Court May 10.

Approximately one pound of marijuana was recovered after Trail Crime Reduction Unit investigators obtained grounds for a search warrant following a prior arrest of a 22-year-old man from the same home on an unrelated matter earlier that day.
