A woman who is set to stand trial later this year on a set of criminal charges out of Taber, has pleaded guilty to another set of charges out of Lethbridge.

Amy Gaffney, along with Dale Samuel Rombough, is scheduled to stand trial in November on charges of drug possession, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, and drug possession for the purpose of trafficking.

The charges stem from an incident May 15 of last year when a Taber police officer investigated a suspicious man and vehicle in a residential area. Three people were arrested and, during a search, police seized crystal methamphetamine, fentanyl, cocaine and weapons.

During a hearing Thursday in Lethbridge provincial court, Gaffney pleaded guilty to charges of drug possession and breaching court orders, in relation to an incident also last May in Lethbridge when city police noticed a stolen vehicle in a business parking lot and approached the male driver and Gaffney, who was the passenger.

Both occupants were arrested after police learned they were on previous release conditions to not have contact with each other. Gaffney, court was told, was found in possession of three grams of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. She was fined $200.

Rombough is also charged in connection with the Lethbridge incident. His case was in court Thursday, as well, but simply adjourned to July 16.
