A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a Lethbridge woman charged following a police drug bust in the city nearly a year ago.
The warrant was issued Thursday for Keisha Tallow, after she failed to attend a scheduled hearing in Lethbridge provincial court. Her lawyer, who was allowed to withdraw from the case, told court the accused had failed to show up for several previous court hearings, and she has lost contact with her client.
Tallow, 27, was charged last April after police officers from Lethbridge, Taber, Blood Tribe and the RCMP, raided northside and westside homes March 26 and seized $1,250 in cash and $20,000 worth of drugs, including 468 carfentanil pills, 30 grams of cocaine, 48 codeine pills and 3.2 grams of methamphetamine.
Tallow faces two charges of drug possession for the purpose of trafficking, and one charge of possession of the proceeds of crime under $5,000.
A co-accused, Corey Nelson Amyotte, was also arrested in relation to the bust and is charged with three counts of drug possession for the purpose of trafficking and one count of possession of the proceeds of crime under $5,000. His matter has been adjourned to March 26, ostensibly for a bail hearing.
