On March 16, 2018, while attending residences on a ‘warrant round-up’, Desmarais RCMP arrested a female and laid several Criminal Code charges.
Police pulled into a residence and located an occupied vehicle in the driveway.
The driver of the vehicle provided a false name and was arrested for obstruction. Searching her, police located some methamphetamine.
The vehicle was towed and upon execution of a warrant to search it, police located cocaine (18g), methamphetamine and money inside. The drugs were individually packaged in small bags.
A 33-year-old woman from Slave Lake was charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking methamphetamine, trafficking in property obtained by crime, obstruction and identity fraud. She was released after a judicial hearing with conditions and will be attending Slave Lake Provincial Court on April 12, 2018.
The RCMP’s ‘K’ Division Crime Reduction Strategy, which is a targeted, evidence-based approach to policing, enables police to identify repeat offenders, conduct targeted enforcement initiatives and to address the root cause of crimes.
