According to the RPS, the woman was a passenger in a vehicle which had been pulled over by police in the city’s east end. She was arrested after police found 1,480 grams of meth, an undisclosed amount of MDMA as well as scales, bags and other indicators of drug trafficking. After the arrest, a search warrant was obtained under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act for an undisclosed location also in the east end. Police there found “a small amount” of fentanyl and more items which indicate drug trafficking. Further investigation resulted in the drug unit finding an additional 4,930 grams of methamphetamine, 25 grams of cocaine and $8,500 in cash at a different location than the search warrant. RPS confirmed the additional drugs and cash were found at a different location than the search warrant, but did not provide additional details. The Regina woman is charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking methamphetamine, possession of fentanyl and possession of MDMA under the CDSA. She also faces a charge of possession of the proceeds of crime under $5,000, a Criminal Code offence. She made her first appearance in court on Thursday.
