Lethbridge’s biggest-ever drug bust results in two year jail sentence

What had once been referred to as the city’s largest-ever drug seizure being resolved in Lethbridge Provincial Court Monday (June 17).

Back in February 2017, ALERT reported that $1.2 million worth of various drugs, as well as cash and other stolen property were taken from four homes. Three people were charged.

29 year old Drew Boake previously pleaded guilty to a single trafficking charge in relation to 21.7 kg of marijuana and was sentenced Monday to two years in jail.

Meanwhile, 25 year old Katlyn Robinson had her charges withdrawn and charges against 31 year old Alexander Herbert were stayed by the Crown last year.

The Crown says the case was dealt with in this way due to complications with evidence.

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!
