Pot smuggler busted at airport

A prolific law-breaking Surrey resident is in police custody for causing a disturbance Wednesday night in West Kelowna.

A prolific law-breaking Surrey resident is in police custody for causing a disturbance Wednesday night in West Kelowna.

West Kelowna Mounties were called to a parking lot, at 3000 Louie Drive at 10:20 p.m., after a witness observed a loud argument between a man and woman, who were associated to a black GMC pickup sporting Alberta licence plate, said Const. Steve Holmes.

Both parties were spoken to and the matter was considered dealt with until police later found that the man had provided a false name.

A query of the man’s real name revealed that he was on a Conditional Sentence Order, out of Richmond, that had conditions, one of which was a curfew from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. where he was to be in his residence in Surrey.

Police located and arrested the man at a local hotel where he and the woman he was with, were staying.  “A baggie of marijuana was found on him upon his arrest,” said Holmes.  He will be in court today to face a number of charges, including breach of probation and drug possession.
