A woman is facing drug charges after police spotted a suspicious vehicle in front of a Powell River school.

The arrest happened Tuesday morning in front of Westview Elementary.

A records check found that the 41-year-old male driver was prohibited from driving.

He was arrested, and released to attend court at a later date. 

The 42-year-old female passenger was then told she could leave the vehicle, and when she got up a small amount of what appeared to be crack cocaine was located under where she was sitting.
