A man on a Canada-wide warrant and his passenger have been charged after Prince Albert’s Integrated Street Enforcement Team (ISET) searched a vehicle on Tuesday in Mistawasis First Nation.
Narcisse Paul Bear, 35, was wanted on a country-wide warrant since Aug. 8 for breaching the conditions of his parole and for being unlawfully at large. Officers located him driving a vehicle in Mistawasis First Nation, which is near Shellbrook.
Shay Watson, 25, was also in the vehicle and was arrested for breach of recognizance for violating the conditions of her release on previous charges.
When police searched the vehicle, they located 1.1 pounds of methamphetamine, 3.7 grams of crack cocaine, over $5,000 CAD in cash, weight scales, four cell phones, bear spray, ammunition and a homemade conducted energy weapon.
Both suspects are facing several charges, including possession for the purpose of trafficking methamphetamine, possession of cocaine and possession of a prohibited weapon.
Bear and Watson made their first court appearance in Prince Albert on Wednesday.
