A Castlegar man, 37, is facing charges for drug trafficking and possession of a loaded handgun following an arrest in downtown Trail last week.
It all started with a call to the Trail detachment just before 5 p.m. on Thursday, June 3.
The person reported a possible theft in progress on Cedar Avenue, with the location described as the 800 block of Farwell Street.
A front line Trail RCMP officer arrested the suspect without incident at or near the scene of the alleged crime.
Police report that a search of the man resulted in the seizure of 65 grams of suspected cocaine, 30 grams of suspected methamphetamine, and a loaded handgun.
The Castlegar man was released on a $1,500 cash surety with a number of conditions.
He is slated for a first appearance in the Rossland courthouse on June 24.
Trail police generally do not name suspects until their first court appearance, when charges are officially sworn in by Crown counsel.
