LETHBRIDGE, AB – Two people are facing drug and weapon charges after the Lethbridge Police Service responded to a report of suspicious activity earlier this week.

Officers found them inside a detached garage in an alley along the 500 block of 13 Ave North around 11:30 p.m. on Monday (Nov. 8). A small amount of meth and fentanyl, as well as throwing knives, plastic knuckles, bear spray and a pellet gun were seized.

Nevada Vander Meer, 27 of Lethbridge, is facing two counts of drug possession and another count of carrying a concealed weapon. Natasha Smith, 23 of Glenwood, is facing a single charge of drug possession.

Both have been released from custody to appear in court at a later date.

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!
