LETHBRIDGE, AB – Six people were arrested in connection to yet another drug trafficking investigation at a local hotel, but only one 39 year old man has been charged.

Earlier this month, Lethbridge Police began investigating ongoing complaints of drug trafficking by tenants living in the Superlodge Hotel along 7 Ave S and Mayor Magrath Drive.

A search warrant was executed on Thursday (Nov. 18) in one specific room, where pellet guns, body armour and a small amount of fentanyl were seized and three people arrested.

Three more people were taken into custody when officers also stopped a vehicle associated with that hotel room. A search of the car turned up bear spray and a large machete.

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!
