A 41-year-old man is facing charges after Manitoba RCMP found over half a tonne of cannabis and hash products in the back of a semi-trailer on Highway 1.
Police pulled the truck over on Saturday around 10:40 a.m. in the rural municipality of Reynolds, RCMP said in a news release Monday.
Officers searched the truck after they found inconsistencies in the driver’s paperwork. Inside the trailer, they found roughly 567 kilograms — 1,250 pounds — of unstamped dried cannabis and hash products.
