During the early morning hours of May 10 members of the Morden Police Service were alerted to a suspicious vehicle and conducted a traffic stop.
The front passenger of the vehicle was known to have a warrant for his arrest for being unlawfully at large. While officers placed the accused under arrest, they noticed a container on the passenger floor board that contained a substance believed to be methamphetamine and located two syringes in the accused pocket.
Police identified the rear passenger as being bound by conditions, from a prior drug investigation, and he was arrested for breaching those conditions. A subsequent search of his property revealed a quantity of substance believed to be methamphetamine.
The female driver was arrested, and during a search of her property, police located a quantity of substance believed to be methamphetamine along with other drug related paraphernalia.
As a result, twenty-nine year old Sheldon Guy Jardine-McIntyre is charged with possession of a controlled substance, 2 counts of breaching the conditions of an undertaking and 1 count of breaching the conditions of a Probation Order.
Fifty year old Guy Joseph McIntyre is charged with possession of a controlled substance and 3 counts of breaching the conditions of an undertaking.
