One of six people arrested last week during a drug bust in the city was unable to make his first court appearance, Wednesday.
Ramsey Wilfred Eagle Plume, who is remanded at the Lethbridge Correctional Centre, was scheduled to make a closed-circuit TV appearance in Lethbridge provincial court on charges of drug possession for the purpose of trafficking and possession of the proceeds of crime. However, the accused has, like all new inmates, been placed in isolation until he has been tested and cleared of COVID-19.
His matter returns to court Friday to check on his progress and see if he has retained a lawyer.
Eagle Plume, 22, and five others were arrested last Friday following a drug bust at a residence in the 600 block of 8 Street South. Officers searched the residence of a multi-unit complex and seized methamphetamine, fentanyl and cocaine worth nearly $3,400, as well as drug paraphernalia, including digital scales and supplies for packaging. They also found $600 cash, multiple swords and bear spray.
Also charged are Lethbridge residents Joseph Tyler Good Dagger, 21, Chantelle Ann Twigg, 21, Katcheri Monique Mountain Horse, 21, Darlene Eagle Plume, 54, and Cameron Troy Small Eyes, 31. The five co-accused were released from custody shortly after their arrest and are scheduled to appear in court in July and August.
