A couple from Surrey is facing drug trafficking charges after Boston Bar RCMP seized hundreds of marijuana plants from the back of their vehicle last Thursday.
Two police officers observed the green 1991 Toyota Rav 4 in the driveway of a home on Riverside Drive which was believed to be unoccupied. When they later pulled the vehicle over, they could smell an overpowering odour of marijuana coming from the Rav 4.
The RCMP located 335 freshly harvested marijuana plants in the back of the vehicle.
A 49-year-old man and a 43-year-old woman were arrested and charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking.
The couple was released from custody, with the man on a promise to appear in court on Dec. 6.
