A woman who has appeared in court more than a dozen times on drug- and weapon-related offences has now had her bail revoked.

Thursday, in Lethbridge provincial court, a lawyer representing Shaquerri Young Pine said she has not seen or heard from her client and that she did not show up to a job, either.

Young Pine’s case has been repeatedly adjourned since she was arrested last May to allow her time to hire a lawyer. A man charged with Young Pine, Larry Healy Jr., hired Calgary lawyer Robin McIntyre some time ago and they have been waiting for Young Pine to retain a lawyer so their matters can proceed.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled to run April 16-17.

Young Pine, 19, and Healy, 40, were charged in April 2019 following a traffic stop downtown in which police seized $60,000 worth of drugs. Police stopped a pickup truck for a couple of equipment violations, and while speaking to the occupants, noticed a machete in between the seat and centre console.

Police seized a large quantity of drugs, including 117 grams carfentanil worth $46,800, 40 capsules believed to contain heroin worth $8,000, 10.8 grams of methamphetamine worth $1,080, 12 hydromorphone capsules worth $95, 13 amphetamine capsules worth $260, and 1,035 gabapentin pills worth $245. They also found a hatchet, baton, machete, brass knuckles, three Baggies of carfentanil, nearly $300 cash, a concealed knife on the male driver, and a sheathed knife the passenger was wearing around her neck.

Healy and Young Pine were each charged with numerous counts of drug possession for the purpose of trafficking, possession of a prohibited weapon, knowingly possessing a prohibited weapon and carrying a concealed weapon. Healy faces an additional charge of possession of the proceeds of crime.
