Two Regina males, ages 33 and 39, are facing drug-related charges following their arrests last night, Wednesday, November 21, 2018.
At about 11:40 p.m. on Wednesday, November 21st, patrol members observed a vehicle and occupants behaving in a suspiciously in the 700 block Robinson Street. The patrol car followed the vehicle in order to initiate a traffic stop and noted that the driver of the vehicle was driving in an erratic manner. The officers conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle in the 3700 block of Sherwood Drive. The driver is alleged to have refused to produce identification, a driver’s license and registration to police. He was initially detained for obstruction. While the officers were interacting with the driver, the passenger of the vehicle was holding three cell phones, which rang repeatedly. The passenger was also wearing a satchel around his neck. This observation, earlier observations and the actions of both the driver and passenger led to their arrests. A search of the satchel yielded a large quantity of a substance tested and found to be methamphetamine, as well as a significant amount of Canadian currency, predominantly in $20. denominations. The males were subsequently charged.
Thirty-three year-old Alan Matthew LANG, and 39 year-old Michael Stephen Shondel PAUL, both of Regina, are jointly charged with Possession of the Purpose of Trafficking [5(2) CDSA] and Possession of Proceeds of Property Obtained by Crime over $5,000. [355(a) CC]. Both LANG and PAUL made their first court appearances on these charges in Provincial Court at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 22, 2018.
