News Drug charges against Kapuskasing man SHARE ON: Bob McIntyre, staff Thursday, Aug. 6th, 2020 (for illustrative purposes only) Backpack or hot potato? That’s the basis of charges laid by the OPP against a 61-year-old Kapuskasing man. They say he reported to Cochrane OPP that he found a backpack alongside Highway 11, and turned it over. It contained a wide range of illicit drugs and cash, total value about eight-thousand dollars. Also in the bag was the man’s personal ID, leading police to conclude the drugs and cash belonged to him. A search of his home helped find more marijuana plants than legally allowed. The man goes to court in October on four charges.
