Lethbridge Police have charged a man with numerous drug and weapons offences as a result of a lengthy surveillance operation.
In September, members of the Crime Suppression Team began a file on a suspected drug trafficking operation. Surveillance was conducted and numerous interactions consistent with drug trafficking were observed in relation to a home in the 500 block of 26 Street South.
On Thursday, police made an arrest and a search warrant resulted in the seizure of items including more than $20,500 in cash, a Taser, brass knuckles and bear spray. Police said in a release there was also more than $30,000 in drugs seized including quantities of Xanax, Oxycocet, Oxycodone, cocaine, MDMA, ketamine and marijuana.
Christopher Jackson, 39, faces charges including: four counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking; possession of cannabis for the purpose of selling; possession of proceeds of crime over $5,000; two counts of unauthorized possession of prohibited weapons; two counts of possession of a prohibited weapon obtained by commission of offence; possession of an identity document; and possession of property obtained by crime.
Jackson was released from custody to appear in court Feb. 5.

All of the naysayers to Mustard Seed setting up shop seem to have no idea the amount of drug use already happening down the alleyway behind luigi’s south and the amount of drug dealers in the lake view area.

As if street people don’t frequent the area to begin with.
