A 35-year-old Lethbridge man has been sent to prison after pleading guilty to drug possession for the purpose of trafficking and breaching court orders.

Daylan John Strembesky, who appeared in court Thursday by closed-circuit TV from the Lethbridge Correctional Centre, was sentenced to two years in a federal penitentiary and prohibited for life from possessing firearms and other weapons.

Court was told that on Feb. 26 of last year police searched a northside home, where they found 5.4 grams of methamphetamine and a loaded .32-calibre handgun. Strembesky was, at the time, under a court order not to possess any firearms.

Billie-Anne Paulette, 30, was also charged in relation to the incident.

Federal Crown prosecutor Mark Klassen said although police caught Paulette with the methamphetamine, Strembesky claimed it was his.
