More drug busts in Driftpile

Leader staff

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.
