Cpl. Don Wrigglesworth said a search of her clothing located several grams of suspected crack cocaine.

He added a further check of the vehicle located more drugs and items indicative of drug trafficking.

“Police located score sheets, a number of cell phones, a digital scale and a substantial amount of money” said Const. Kyle Richmond of the TEU in a prepared statement. “These items, when found together, help build the picture of a drug dealer”.

Police also located over 50 grams of methamphetamine, several grams of heroin and over five ounces of suspected cocaine.

The vehicle was also seized as offence-related property and towed from the scene.

The woman was held for a hearing before a judiciary justice of the peace at which time she was released on a recognizance of bail with a number of conditions.

She is scheduled to appear in provincial court Nov. 2.
