A RIDE program in Kenora netted something other than a drunk driver.

The check stop last Thursday lead to a search of the vehicle under the Cannabis Control Act after officers determined the driver had access to marijuana.

The OPP say they found a number of drugs after officers noticed the driver had a suspended license.

A quantity of cocaine, fentanyl and oxycodone were seized along with Canadian currency and other paraphernalia dealing with drug trafficking.

Two people from Alberta and a 32 year old from Kenora were arrested.

They each face three charges of drug trafficking.

The Kenora man also has been charged with driving with a suspended license and failure to comply with a probation order.
