A search warrant was executed by the Weyburn Police Service’s Criminal Investigation and Drug Enforcement Unit this past Friday, resulting in a number of charges.
The WPS served the warrant on a home inside the city, and a woman was taken into custody. Police say during the search, they discovered 17.5 grams of methamphetamine, 5.5 grams of crack cocaine, and other evidence of drug trafficking. Also found in the home, according to the WPS, was $1,300 in cash and a long-barrel firearm.
As a result of the warrant, the suspect was charged with trafficking methamphetamine and cocaine, possession of a weapon, possession of the proceeds of crime and several breaches of a release order.
The Weyburn Police Service received a total of 82 calls for service last week, which resulted in a total of 35 charges. Of those charges, 25 were under the Criminal Code of Canada, six under the Traffic Safety Act and four under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. Police say 11 of the Criminal Code charges were related to people who either failed to comply with the conditions of their release or failed to attend court when they were required to do so.
