If you are going to be transporting large amounts of drugs there are smarter ways to do it than by using a stolen vehicle.

Midway RCMP told The Times that when they observed a suspicious vehicle traveling through Greenwood at about 6 p.m. on Tuesday, May1 the vehicle attempted to evade them by heading up Deadwood Road.

When Midway RCMP got the vehicle stopped it was determined that it had been stolen out of Calgary a month earlier and a couple from Trail were placed under arrest.

According to Sgt. Kevin Christensen of the Midway Detachment, a subsequent search of the vehicle located a substantial amount of cocaine and ecstasy powder.   Charges of Possession of stolen property, driving while prohibited, and possession for the purpose of trafficking are being sought.
