Earlier today,  the provincial courthouse in Williams Lake took an unexpected twist after one man’s common-law wife tried to ensure he had some entertainment while in jail.

During the man’s hearing for numerous outstanding warrants,  his partner took the opportunity to throw a bag of marijuana into the prisoner’s box where he was seated, said the Williams Lake RCMP.

The incident was witnessed by those in the courtroom and she was arrested at the scene for trafficking.

“In my time as police officer I’ve seen, and heard of, a number of odd criminal offences but I have to admit this is definitely one of the stranger ones,” said Inspector Warren Brown, officer in Charge of Williams Lake RCMP Detachment.

“It’s important for people to remember that drug trafficking charges are very serious. Hopefully this woman will learn her lesson and not commit other criminal acts in the future,” Brown added.
