During the investigation, it was discovered that the driver had drugs in his vehicle. The driver was then arrested for possession of a controlled substance. A search of the vehicle incidental to the driver’s arrest resulted in several individual baggies of powdered cocaine being seized as well as a quantity of Canadian currency and a cellular phone.

Victor Mosquera, a 19-year-old male from Hepburn, is charged with trafficking cocaine, possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000 and three counts of failing to comply with an undertaking.
