On February 5, 2020, officers from the Saskatchewan RCMP Roving Traffic Unit and the Saskatchewan Highway Safety Patrol stopped a vehicle driving east along Highway 1 near Swift Current, SK, for not having mud flaps equipped.

During the traffic stop, numerous indicators were observed that led to the arrest of both occupants of the vehicle under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA).

A search of the vehicle revealed 170.5 grams of suspected methamphetamine which could be broken down into approximately 1700 individual doses. The drugs were believed to be travelling from Medicine Hat in Alberta to Swift Current.

Other items seized included drug paraphernalia, cell-phones, a scale, a pipe, hard drives, capsaicin dog spray and a knife.

The driver was identified as James Gardner (DOB: 1989-10-01) and the passenger as Christopher Foster (DOB: 1971-03-05), both of Swift Current.
