Three men are facing drug trafficking and weapon charges following a month-long investigation by ALERT Lethbridge’s organized crime team.

The case wrapped up on Monday (June 15) when police searched two homes on the city’s west side, and found more than $62,000 worth of drugs and cash proceeds of crime.

Officers seized 101-grams of meth, 54-grams of each carfentanil and cocaine, more than $29,000 in cash, as well as a taser, two replica firearms and two vehicles.

Leslie Cole, 29, Brandon Bougie, 27, and Anthony Jones, 21, are all facing a number of charges in relation to the bust.

They’re expected to appear in a Lethbridge courtroom on July 23.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
