Lakeshore Regional Police continue their crackdown on drug trafficking activity on the Drifpile First Nation.
As reported in the June 10 Leader, two people were arrested and charged after a search warrant turned up illegal drugs and trafficking paraphernalia. That was on May 28. Several days later, the police service issued an almost identical news release, about a June 8 search of a house in Driftpile. This time, “a quantity of methamphetamine” was seized, along with drug-trafficking paraphernalia, weapons, ammunition and electronic storage devices.
Two adult males and one adult female have been arrested. Charges include possession for the purpose of trafficking, possession of a controlled substance, identity theft and failing to comply with a release order. All the accused have been released on a promise to appear in High Prairie Provincial Court on Oct. 19. Charges are pending against a second adult female.
