A 41-year-old man will be facing a number of charges in a Dauphin courtroom after a traffic stop by Manitoba RCMP led to the seizure of a backpack full of drugs.
Police said the vehicle was stopped Aug. 4 on Kerr Avenue in Dauphin as part of an ongoing investigation, and in a search of a backpack belonging to a passenger, police found 61 grams of meth and seven grams of cocaine, as well as a small quantity of ‘purple down’, cash, and gift cards.
Purple down is described by police as a potentially deadly mixture of fentanyl, carfentanyl, and often heroin and other drugs.
The man faces two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking, as well as charges for possessing property obtained by crime and possessing proceeds of crime.
His court date is scheduled for Nov. 15.
