Police then conducted a traffic stop, and their investigation revealed that none of the occupants had a Possession and Acquisition License, and were each taken into custody.

Police were also able to find around 27 grams of what is suspected to be cocaine, as well as trafficking supplies, bear spray, illicit cannabis, and the previously mentioned firearm along with 100 rounds of ammunition.
