Fort Saskatchewan - A man and a woman from Athabasca have been charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking, after they were pulled over by Fort Saskatchewan RCMP Sept. 4.

Nancy Kanarek, 54, and Clifford Aitken, 49, were released from custody with conditions after a judicial hearing and are scheduled to appear in Fort Saskatchewan Provincial Court Oct. 1, after RCMP conducted a traffic stop and found 35 grams of suspected methamphetamine, a digital scale and $1,425, suspected to be proceeds of crime.

At 8:40 p.m. Sept. 4, police initiated the stop after the registered owner of the vehicle's licence was found to be expired, and was the subject of an arrest warrant. A subsequent search of the vehicle produced the drugs and cash, said an RCMP release received Sept. 9.
