A Brockville man is facing several charges after police stopped him behind the wheel.

Police say Beauregard was not supposed to be driving and there was a warrant out for his arrest from OPP in the area.

Police stopped the vehicle and arrested the 42-year-old for the warrant and for driving with a disqualified licence.

The drugs seized have an estimated value of $4,000, police say.

Officers also found a “stun gun brass knuckle” and two knives, which police seized because Beauregard is on a prohibition not to possess any weapons.

The 42-year-old was charged with three counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, three counts of possession of a weapon contrary to a prohibition order, three counts of possession of a prohibited weapon in a motor vehicle and three counts of driving while disqualified.
