A man’s cross-Canada bike ride was cut short this week, after Mounties say they found a large quantity of illegal drugs and weapons during a traffic stop.
Officers spotted the man cycling illegally on the roadway across the Port Mann Bridge around 6:30 p.m. on June 4, police said in a news release Tuesday.
The man, who had an outstanding arrest warrant, told officers he was leaving the province.
Cpl. Mike Halskov told Black Press Media that alleged drugs seized included crystal meth, heroin, fentanyl, psilocybin – also known as magic mushrooms – and LSD.
The man was arrested, and remains in custody.
Halskov wouldn’t confirm the name of the man charged, citing unrelated ongoing investigations.
