A Winnipeg man’s attempt at ditching a bag of meth while being followed by police backfired Thursday night.
Police said they followed an erratic vehicle near Portage Avenue and Mount Royal Road when they saw a bag thrown from the vehicle by the driver.
Officers retrieved the bag and stopped the driver. The bag contained around 49 grams of meth, with a street value of $7,575.
Bryden Stewart Macdougall, 38, was charged with possessing meth for the purpose of trafficking, possessing the proceeds of property obtained by crime, driving without a licence, failing to signal a turn, and an outstanding warrant.
Macdougall was detained at the Winnipeg Remand Centre.
