Lethbridge Police have charged a 50-year-old woman after a gun, drugs and stolen property were seized from a westside home on Thursday afternoon.

As part of an ongoing investigation into drug activity, police obtained a search warrant for a home on the westside, according to a release from the Lethbridge Police Service. Members of the Priority Crimes Unit, with assistance from other officers in the Field Operations and Criminal Investigation divisions, executed the search warrant at a home along Assiniboia Way.

Six occupants were located inside the residence and police subsequently seized a .22-calibre rifle, a small quantity of methamphetamine, a larger quantity of an unknown powder suspected to be a buffing agent, just over $2,000 cash, trafficking paraphernalia, stolen ID and credits cards and multiple stolen bicycles.

Five of the subjects were released without charges, but a 50-year-old female has been charged with multiple offences.

Cheri Ellen Komar, 50, is charged with unauthorized possession of a firearm, possession of a weapon obtained by the commission of an offence, possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, possession of the proceeds of crime, possession of stolen identity documents, possession of stolen credit cards and three counts of breach of a recognizance.

Police say Komar is in custody awaiting a Judicial Interim Release hearing. Investigation is ongoing and additional charges are anticipated.
