Two Lethbridge residents are facing charges after drugs, a handgun, cash, and stolen property were seized from a west side home last week.

ALERT Lethbridge’s organized crime and gang team wrapped up a short-term drug trafficking investigation on Friday with the search of a home and vehicle in the Indian Battle Heights neighbourhood.

Members of the Lethbridge Police Service helped with the arrests and search warrants.

ALERT Lethbridge Staff Sergeant Leon Borbandy says “this seizure illustrates the collaborative effort between policing partners to keep Lethbridge safe and get harmful drugs off the streets.”
