Source: Brandon Police Service Media Release

At 5:00 p.m. yesterday, police stopped a vehicle in the 600 block of 26th Street. The driver lied about her name in order to avoid identification, as she is prohibited from driving. Police positively identified the female in a short period of time, and arrested her for the driving offence.  A search incidental to arrest resulted in officers locating a quantity of cocaine in individually similar sized packages, prepared for resale. The female was released from custody and will appear in court in June. She faces charges of prohibited driving, public mischief, personation with intent, possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, and failing to comply with a release order.
