An arrest warrant has been issued for one of several people charged following a police raid on a Lethbridge home just days before Christmas.

Genereaux, 27, is charged with drug possession and drug possession for the purpose of trafficking relating to a drug bust Dec. 21 at a home in the 200 block of 15 Street North, where 13 people were found but only six actually charged.

During the search, two more people were arrested after one arrived to purchase drugs and another met with an undercover police officer nearby after calling the house to set up a drug deal.

Police said they seized 21 pre-packaged doses of carfentanil, 16 pre-packaged doses of heroin, stolen identification and health cards plus stolen property that included skis, a mountain bike and tools.

Shelly Bevans of Fort Macleod and Lethbridge residents Deon Gros Ventre boy, Richard Shaw, Jessica Johnston and John Jones, were also charged following the police raid.

Jones, who faces several unrelated charges, as well, pleaded guilty Thursday to one count of drug possession and was sentenced to 14 days in jail. Court was told that during the search of the home police found on a dresser .4 grams of heroin belonging to Jones.
