Following a traffic stop on March 5 at 11:40 p.m. in the town of Rimbey, an adult male who is currently on parole, along with a female youth, were both arrested and face a series of charges.

42-year-old James Leslie Holley was driving the vehicle when it was stopped for a traffic infraction.  He was found to be breaching a condition of his parole and was arrested.  A search of the vehicle incidental to his arrest revealed a handgun with ammunition, bear spray and what appears to be crystal methamphetamine in the vehicle.  Those items were seized by the RCMP.

The 17-year-old female, from Red Deer, was wanted on an arrest warrant out of Blackfalds RCMP Detachment.  Following her arrest, she was also found to be in possession of what appears to be crystal methamphetamine.  Given that she is a youth, she cannot be identified as per the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

Both Holley and the female youth are now facing charges under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act of Possession for the purpose of trafficking as well as Criminal Code charges of  Possession of a restricted firearm with ammunition and Possession of a firearm in a motor vehicle.

Further, Holley is facing charges of Possession of a firearm while prohibited.

Neither subject spoke to bail.  Holley has been remanded in custody and will have his bail appearance on April 7 in the Provincial Court of Alberta in Rimbey.  The youth remains in custody with her bail appearance set over as well.
