Dauphin man facing drug charges returns to court

Another court appearance has been made by a Dauphin man, arrested on drug charges and several outstanding warrants.

28-year-old Clint Nepinak will return to court in Winnipeg on March 1st.

Around 12:30 a.m.on January 15th, an RCMP officer in Ste Rose stopped to help a man change a tire along Highway 5, and upon noticing the vehicle had no licence plates, the officer questioned the man, who didn’t have any registration or bill of sale, and gave what was suspected to be a fake name.

The Mountie searched the vehicle, and found open liquor, and several bags containing what was believed to be crystal meth, prescription drugs and various gift cards.

A search of the suspect turned up a bag of what was believed to be cocaine, empty baggies, and multiple cell phones.
