Saskatoon police arrested two men after routine traffic stop led to drug trafficking charges Monday night.
The two men, aged 20 and 37, are facing charges of possession of methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking and obstructing an officer and breach of probation.
Both men are from Saskatoon and had outstanding warrants.
Just before midnight on Monday, officers notice a vehicle being driven by a suspended driver. When they stopped the vehicles in the 1100 block of 22nd Street West, the driver gave police a false name.
It didn’t take long for officers to find his real identity, that he didn’t have a valid driver’s license and that he was carrying methamphetamine. Once both men were arrested, police located more than 13 grams of meth and an imitation pistol underneath the driver’s seat.
Firearm related charges are still looming.
