A 24-year-old Calgary man who was hoping to resolve more than 50 charges relating to Lethbridge offences is heading for trial later this year.
Alexander Timothy Kulach, who had hoped to resolve his charges without going to trial, will now stand trial for three days in Lethbridge provincial court beginning Sept. 27.
Police seized $50,000 worth of drugs after officers received reports that a man and woman were attempting to break into homes in the 600 block of 12 B Street North about 1 a.m. Jan. 11, 2020.
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.
