Rocky Mountain House RCMP seized drugs and a large amount of money on O’Chiese First Nation after a driver allegedly tried to flee from police on Friday.
RCMP said officers patrolling the area observed a vehicle travelling at a high rate of sped and attempted to pull the vehicle over. The driver fled and the vehicle eventually got stuck in a ditch.
Two males who ran from the vehicle were arrested after a lengthy foot pursuit.
Methamphetamine, a machete style weapon and a large amount of Canadian currency were found when the male driver and the vehicle were searched.
A 22-year-old man, of Sunchild First Nation, was taken into custody and charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of proceeds of crime over $5,000, flight from police, drive without a licence, breaching a recognizance, driving without motor vehicle insurance, and operating an unregistered motor vehicle.
The 25-year-old passenger was released on a promise to appear in court.
