Booze, illegal drugs and a weapon were in a car that Timmins Police stopped for various moving violations last Wednesday morning.

A patrol officer noticed the car being driven in a suspicious manner and with a blacked-out licence plate, in the parking lot at the McIntyre Arena.

There was open beer in the vehicle and what police call “quantities of controlled substances, drug paraphernalia and a weapon.”  They were all seized. Among the haul is about $5,000 worth of methamphetamines.

The driver — a 24-year-old local man — is up on several charges:
