On May 6, at approximately 5:20 pm, officers with the Dauphin RCMP Detachment conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle located on River Avenue in Dauphin. 

In speaking with the driver, it was determined that the 29-year-old male, from Pine Creek First Nation, did not possess a valid drivers license. As the driver was exiting the vehicle, the officer observed drug paraphernalia on the center console in plain view. The driver was immediately placed under arrest and upon his search, officers located a small quantity of drugs believed to be cocaine in his possession.

The three remaining passengers, from Dauphin, in the vehicle were subsequently taken into custody.

The 36-year-old female was placed under arrest and, upon her search, officers located numerous small baggies of a substance believed to be cocaine and crack cocaine.

The two male passengers (53,32) were arrested on scene and, upon their search, officers located drug-related paraphernalia.

A search of the vehicle located additional drugs, cash and drug-related paraphernalia.
The driver and two of the passengers were later released from police custody for a court appearance scheduled for June 25, 2024, in Dauphin where they will each face charges of Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking x2 and Possession of Proceeds of Crime.

Wayne Mckay, 32, was remanded into custody on these same charges.
