A 25 year old man is facing drug possession and trafficking charges in Dawson Creek, after being arrested Monday evening in possession of four ounces of cocaine with an estimated street value of more than $7,000.

He was apprehended during a routine road stop near Silvers Cold Beer and Wine Store in the Mile-Zero City.

Police say there were three other people in the vehicle in which they also found a container of open liquor and a bag of cannibis marijuana in plain view.

The arrested suspect was released on bail, after he was taken before a Justice of the Peace, and a police release on the arrest does not give a subsequent court date.
