Battlefords RCMP have arrested two people and seized drugs after searching a home in the city.
On October 7th, the North Battleford Gang Task Force/Street Enforcement Team executed a warrant at a home on the 700 block of 100th Street in North Battleford. The warrant was issued in connection to a drug investigation opened at the end of September.
A male suspect was arrested on his way to this home and was allegedly in possession of 22 grams of crack cocaine, a quantity of hydromorphone, a large amount of cash, and two weapons.
A search of this home allegedly turned up more evidence of drug trafficking, and a female suspect was also arrested on scene. The suspects have been identified as Trevor Cummer, 39 years old, and Ashlyn Paules, 26 years old, both of North Battleford.
Both suspects were charged with alleged possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, possession of hydromorphone for the purpose of trafficking and possession of proceeds of crime.
Cummer has been charged additionally with two counts of possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, one count of carrying a concealed weapon and possession of a prohibited weapon.
Both suspects have been released before a court appearance, set for November 16, 2020, at North Battleford Provincial Court.
