On March 14, 2023, at approximately 1:40 am, Powerview RCMP officers conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle on Provincial Road 304, located north of the community of Powerview/Pine Falls.

An officer approached the vehicle, with three occupants inside, and spoke with the male driver who provided his drivers license.
