A call of a disturbance turned into drug bust for Prince Albert police yesterday.

Shortly after midnight, officers went to a home in the 600 Block of 13th St. W. for a disturbance call. When they arrived, the suspect causing the disturbance and multiple passengers left the home in a blue car. 

Police eventually found the vehicle and pulled it over. Officers saw the driver of the vehicle was holding a baggie of marijuana, prompting them to arrest everyone in the car and search it.

A 31-year-old woman in the vehicle was found with several small baggies of methamphetamine. She is charged with possession of methamphetamine.

An 18-year-old man in the vehicle was found with a knife concealed in his belt area and several more baggies of suspected methamphetamine. The man from Sandy Bay is charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of a weapon for a purpose dangerous to the public peace and in breach of a youth sentence order.
