Three Lethbridge people charged following a major drug bust in March have had their court cases adjourned until September, when it is expected they will enter a plea.

The accused, Jolene Burge, Tyler Petryshyn and Jeffrey Seniec, had their case adjourned Thursday to Sept. 7.

The charges stem from an incident on March 9 following a six-month investigation, when Lethbridge police officers searched a home on Lafayette Boulevard West and seized a quantity of hashish, 13 kilograms of marijuana, nearly two kilograms of marijuana resin, three kilograms of psilocybin, 400 bottles of liquid THC, 136 tabs of LSD, nearly two kilograms of marijuana candy, and more than $121,000 cash.

A GMC Sierra was also seized, and three people inside the home were taken into custody without incident. The cash and drugs seized total about $475,000.

Petryshyn, 35, and Burge, 31, are each charged with two counts of drug possession, four counts of drug possession for the purpose of trafficking, and one count of possession of stolen property over $5,000.

Seniec, 30, is charged with four counts of drug possession for the purpose of trafficking and one count of possession of stolen property over $5,000.
