A 24-year-old Calgary man facing more than 50 charges relating to Lethbridge offences, hopes to resolve them without going to trial.
The matter for Alexander Timothy Kulach was in Lethbridge provincial court Thursday, where an agent for the accused’s lawyer said defence had requested a resolution proposal from the Crown. The case was then adjourned to Dec. 17.
“That will give me enough time to put an offer together,” Federal Crown Prosecutor Mark Klassen told court.
Police seized $50,000 worth of drugs after officers stopped a man and a woman about 1 a.m. Jan. 11, following reports they were attempting to break into homes in the 600 block of 12 B Street North.
Police found two people matching the description a short distance away as they tried the doors of St. Peter’s Church. Both were placed under investigative detention.
The woman was co-operative with police and was released without being charged. The man, however, provided a false name and was arrested for obstruction, police said.
During a search police seized drug paraphernalia and a large amount of drugs including suspected fentanyl, carfentanil, methamphetamine, heroin and a variety of pills. Police also seized several knives, a baton, bear spray and a variety of stolen property.
Kulach is charged with 12 counts of drug possession for the purpose of trafficking, seven counts of possession of stolen property, 27 counts of breach of a release order, as well as charges of trafficking in property or proceeds of crime, carrying a concealed weapon, unauthorized possession of a prohibited weapon, forcible entry, obstructing a peace officer and resisting a peace officer.
