Terrace RCMP arrested a man on the evening of Nov. 28 after receiving a report about a possibly impaired driver in possession of a weapon, according to a Dec. 2 media release.

RCMP members located the driver, who was unconscious in the driver’s seat of a running vehicle. The man was prohibited from driving and did not have a valid drivers licence. A drug recognition expert arrested and evaluated the driver.

Members conducted a search of the vehicle and found a “significant amount of illicit drugs, stolen property and several weapons,” the release said.

The driver was arrested for Impaired Operation of a Motor Vehicle, Prohibited Driving, Possession of Weapons for a Dangerous Purpose and Possession of Property Obtained by Crime. He was later released by a Police Undertaking when sober.
