 PENTICTON - A stolen truck led police to a Calgary man on Monday for various drug and weapon possessions.

Yesterday Penticton RCMP drug task officers arrested two Calgary residents, Kid Ashley Tye Broadhead, 33, and a female, 32, in a parking lot in the 2100 block of Main Street. Cpl. Dan Moskaluk said Broadhead has a lengthy criminal record with numerous outstanding criminal charges in both Hanna, Alberta and Calgary.

Their arrests came after officers recovered a Dodge Dakota pickup truck, reported stolen from Okanagan Falls on Sunday. After arresting Broadhead, police found crystal methamphetamine, ketamine, Oxycontin, drug trafficking gear, an imitation handgun and a .22 calibre handgun. The female was later released with no charges.

Broadhead has been charged with possession of oxycodone for the purpose of trafficking, possession of ketamine for the purpose of trafficking, possession of methamphetamine, possession of stolen property over $5,000, illegal possession of a firearm and possession of a handgun and ammunition while being prohibited from doing so. He has been remanded into custody for the time being.
