A 44-year-old Lethbridge man acing recent drug charges must show up for court in a week or risk being arrested.

Cordelle Daniel Bad Arm didn’t show up for a hearing Thursday in Lethbridge provincial court, which prompted the Crown to ask for an arrest warrant. Judge Timothy Hironaka consented to the request, but ordered the warrant be held until next Thursday to see if the accused attends court. If he doesn’t, the warrant will be released.

Lethbridge lawyer Miranda Hlady, who will attempt to contact her client, said she doesn’t know where Bad Arm is, but added she believes he is still in the “jurisdiction.”

Bad Arm is charged with drug possession for the purpose of trafficking and two counts of failing to comply with the conditions of a release order.

The charges stem from an incident about 1:30 a.m. Feb. 1 when a police officer conducted a traffic stop at the intersection of 1 Avenue and 13 Street North for a bicycle equipment violation.

The cyclist was found to have an outstanding warrant and was arrested, police reported. While searching the individual, police seized 31 pre-portioned bags of methamphetamine and other drug paraphernalia.
