An unwanted guest at a drive-thru restaurant in Quesnel Monday afternoon led to the seizure of stolen meat, drugs, and a loaded handgun.
RCMP Staff Sgt. Chris Riddle says at approximately 4:30 pm the manager of the restaurant on Juniper Road observed an occupant in the drive-thru that had spit at an employee the day prior and that due to this behavior was asked to leave.
When he refused, that’s when police were called to defuse the escalating situation.
“Upon police arrival officers observed a large quantity of packaged meat on the back seat of the vehicle,” says Riddle.
“This meat was suspected of being stolen recently from a local grocery store. All of the occupants were arrested for being possession of stolen property and the vehicle was searched incidental to the arrest.”
Inside the vehicle police located a quantity of drugs, suspected to be Methamphetamine and Heroin, along with a loaded semi-automatic handgun.
All three suspects were later released for upcoming court dates.
Police to investigate.
