A man faces potential charges after police seize cocaine during a traffic stop early Tuesday morning.

A Kelowna Mountie performed a traffic stop with a Cadillac Escalade  June 14 at 1:41 a.m.,  in the area of Abbott Street and Bernard Avenue downtown.

“The officer observed contents inside the vehicle, in plain sight, which resulted in the driver being arrested for possession of a controlled substance,” said Const. Jesse O’Donaghey, in a press release.

“A subsequent search of the vehicle yielded 3.5 grams of suspected cocaine, along with various items consistent with illegal drug use and trafficking.”

The driver, a 58-year-old Kelowna man, was held in police custody. He was expected to appear in Court today facing potential charges of possession of a controlled substance.
