Three people are facing drug charges after Lethbridge Police searched a home here in the city as well as in Raymond last week.

A vehicle stop on Thursday led to the arrest of a man and a woman while another woman was arrested at a home along Stafford Road North.

Police say she was in possession of a small quantity of methamphetamine.

Officers also searched a home in Raymond but learned the male suspect, who had been living there, was recently evicted from the property.
