Man jailed, charges laid after traffic stop
One of two people arrested on criminal charges after a traffic stop was sentenced in Red Deer provincial court on Monday.
Logan Mitchell, 18, of Penhold and Tracey Lynn Mountain, 30, of Kehewin were pulled over by an RCMP officer on patrol in north Red Deer at about 4 a.m. on Jan. 22.
Police allege that a subsequent search of the vehicle and its occupants uncovered cocaine, bear spray and various other weapons, including a firearm.
Mitchell pleaded guilty to resisting or obstructing a police officer and was sentenced to 45 days in jail.
Charges of possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, carrying a concealed weapon and having a weapon in a motor vehicle were withdrawn.
Mountain is facing the same weapons charges, as well as a charge of possession of cocaine and failure to comply with conditions of her release on previous charges.
She is to return to court on Feb. 15 to enter a plea.
