A 37-year-old Lethbridge man is facing drug charges after a Lethbridge Police Crime Suppression Team arrest.
On Tuesday, following a short-term investigation into drug trafficking activity, members of the Crime Suppression Team with assistance from the K9 Unit, attended the Travelodge along the 1000 block of Mayor Magrath Drive South and executed a warrant for the arrest of a male staying in one of the rooms, according to a LPS release.
A male and female – both with outstanding warrants – were located inside and arrested without incident. During the search the male was found in possession of methamphetamine, carfentanil and crack cocaine with a street value of more than $10,300. In addition, police seized a can of pepper spray, brass knuckles, drug paraphernalia and more than $7,300 in cash.
Kevin Paul Rabeau, 37, of Lethbridge is charged with three counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, two counts each of knowingly possessing a prohibited/restricted weapon and unauthorized possession of a prohibited/restricted weapon as well as one count of possession of the proceeds of crime over $5,000.
Rabeau was remanded in custody to appear in court today.
