CLARESHOLM, AB – A traffic stop in Claresholm last week has resulted in drug trafficking charges against two people.
Late last Wednesday, around 11:30pm, Claresholm RCMP initiated a traffic stop within town limits.
One of the two occupants inside had an outstanding warrant for their arrest.
Nanton RCMP assisted with a search of the vehicle and recovered what’s suspected to be meth, cocaine, and fentanyl with a street value of about $7,500.
41 year old Robert Thibeault and 27 year old Kassanda Villneff are jointly charged with six criminal offences including possession for the purpose of trafficking and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
They’ve been released from custody to appear in Fort Macleod Provincial Court in the New Year.
