RCMP officers found more than they bargained for when they pulled over a vehicle on Highway 1 east of Revelstoke, B.C., last week.
Police tracked down the vehicle, which had licence plates from Eastern Canada, after getting an alert about an erratic driver on Sunday, Sept. 8.
They detained the two men in the vehicle under the controlled drugs and substances act, and when they searched it, found $1.9 million CDN in cash.
The men were arrested at the roadside for possession of property obtained by crime.
RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Mike Halskov said officers have seized tens of thousands of dollars in traffic stops before, but generally not an amount as large as this.
Officers are crediting the person who noticed the erratic driving and gave them a call, as well as the officers who recognized something wasn't quite right during the traffic stop.
Alright guys, going to get a little personal with y’all today 🤗. We all have a reason as to why we joined a gym; why we decided to get fit and healthy; and today I’m going to share my reason why! .
Growing up, I was NOT an active kid. I wasn’t enrolled in sports and while the schools I attended had a gym glass I wouldn’t have called it “physical education”. In high school I went to arts school - where physical education was not considered a priority. My school didn’t even have a competitive sports team! At a young age I quickly developed bad habits: smoking cigarettes, drinking, partying WAY too much and I was spiraling out of control; and I hated myself for it. I would look in the mirror and HATE the person staring back at me. She was unhealthy, borderline overweight, extremely depressed, shy, and lost. .
One day I had had enough; I needed to change. I was literally destroying my body. I literally quit smoking overnight, broke out of a toxic relationship, and signed up at a women’s only gym. .
I was too shy and quiet to ask anyone where to start, to help me find a path to a happier, healthier me. So very VERY slowly, and with many bumps and bruises on the way I slowly found myself on my own in that very gym. In those early days I often found myself running out of the gym in sheer embarrassment with my hood pulled up over my head. I wouldn’t go back for a couple of weeks. But something kept pulling me back there and I’m SO glad I kept going back.
Fast forward a few years and I’m about to compete in my first body building competition! The girl I was then never would have believed that this is her now. That is my why, guys. I do it for her. I do it for me. I don’t know where I would be today if I hadn’t found my passion for the gym (and I don’t want to know). The gym is my sanctuary 💕.

I don’t think I could have gone any more basic with that caption do you?! Maybe if I threw a pumpkin spice latte into the mix...
