LETHBRIDGE, AB. – Two people are facing charges of child endangerment after a short-term drug investigation by Lethbridge Police.

The Crime Suppression Team began investigating earlier this month when officers observed suspected drug activity at a home along 12th Avenue North.

This week, LPS arrested one person during a traffic stop and after searching the home and the vehicle, police seized $6,500 worth of drugs including meth and cocaine as well as a stolen doctor’s prescription pad, a taser flashlight, and two pellet guns.

Lethbridge Police say a three year old child was found inside the home and had to be picked up by a family member.
