Approximately 50 kilograms of cannabis buds were seized in Saint-Zotique after police pulled over a vehicle that was exceeding the posted speed limit by over 70 k/hr.


On Saturday September 12 at around 11:45 a.m., a patroller from the Vaudreuil-Dorion Sûreté du Québec station intercepted a vehicle traveling at 173 km/h in a 100 km/h zone.

The vehicle was intercepted at km 7 of Highway 20 west in Saint-Zotique. After the vehicle was stopped, the officer had reasonable grounds to believe that cannabis was in the vehicle and a search warrant was obtained to conduct the operation.

A total of 50 kg (111 lbs) of cannabis buds were seized from the vehicle.

Two suspects were arrested: the driver and passenger of the vehicle, a 24 year old man from Georgetown, Ontario and a 27 year old man from Windsor, Ontario

The vehicle was seized and the pair was released with a promise to appear in court at a later date.
