A 33-year-old man charged in relation to a drug bust in Lethbridge last year was granted bail during a hearing Tuesday in Lethbridge provincial court.

Corey Nelson Amyotte was released on $2,000 no-cash bail with several conditions, including he report weekly to the Lethbridge Police Service, reside at a specific westside residence, obey a curfew from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. every day, and not possess any weapons or contact Keisha Tallow, who was also charged following the same drug bust.

Both accused were charged last April after police officers from Lethbridge, Taber, Blood Tribe and the RCMP, raided northside and westside homes March 26, 2019 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.

Amyotte was granted bail shortly after his arrest, but re-arrested sometime later on additional charges.

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. She failed to show up for a court appearance on the matter March 12 and a warrant was issued for her arrest.

Amyotte 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. He returns to court June 4.
