Police uncover fentanyl, crystal meth, crack cocaine after traffic stop

A man in his 40s is facing several charges after what started out as a routine traffic stop in Powell River.

On June11th at roughly 12:35 a.m., police attempted to stop a vehicle heading north in an alley between Nootka Street and Massett Street, after it was determined not to have insurance. 

The driver sped up to evade police, but was stopped a short time later. 

He then got out of the vehicle and started running, but was tracked down after a brief foot pursuit. 

The 44-year-old was arrested for flight from police and a search uncovered fentanyl, crystal meth and crack cocaine in his possession.
