Three men were charged in two separate incidents that netted $5,000 in cash, drugs and weapons in Central Alberta over the weekend.

Early Saturday morning, Innisfail RCMP stopped a vehicle at a traffic stop in the town limits of Innisfail.

Police found a hidden compartment which contained marijuana and more than $5,000 in cash. Two 18-year-old men were arrested.

The driver is charged with possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking and possession of proceeds of crime over $5,000. He appears in Red Deer provincial court in January.

The next morning, the Innisfail RCMP conducted another traffic stop in Penhold.

Police found marijuana, along with cocaine and methamphetamine. Some drugs were in a concealed device which looked like a regular can of orange pop. Police also found an air pistol, a large knife and a makeshift baton.

The two Penhold men are charged with possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking, possession of cocaine and possession of methamphetamine. They appear in Red Deer provincial court in February.
