Corvettes are supposed to carry only two passengers.
Try stuffing three people into the Chevy sports car, and it’s liable to send up red flags to law enforcement.
That’s what happened on Sept. 11 in the British Columbia city of Surrey, where the Royal Canadian Mounted Police pulled over a black C7 coupe that was hauling the driver and two more occupants, one sitting in the lap of another on the passenger’s side.
But the 2019 Corvette turned out to be hauling much more than just too many passengers.
As the Royal Mounties proceeded to investigate, they found bundles of cash inside the car, estimated to be more than $50,000, along with packages of steroids.
All three occupants of the Corvette were known to police and were arrested for possession of property obtained by crime. They were later released at the scene, and no charges have been made at this time, according to a story on infotel.ca. However, the Corvette was seized, and the investigation is continuing, RCMP officials said.
Two other traffic stops made by the gang enforcement unit on Aug. 31 and Sept. 6 led to seizures of more than $10,000 in cash and crime-related property, according to RCMP.
If you have information about the investigation, you’re asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or through the Crime Stoppers website.
