A Lethbridge woman accused in relation to a drug bust in the city nearly two years ago, is no longer facing charges.

Christina Lynn Guest was facing two counts each of drug possession, careless use/storage of a firearm and unauthorized possession of a firearm, as well as single counts of possession of stolen property and possession of a weapon dangerous to the public. The charges were withdrawn, however, during a brief hearing this week in Lethbridge court of justice. The Crown did not provide the court with a reason for the withdrawal.

Guest was one of three people charged after Lethbridge police – including the tactical unit – and sheriffs searched a home in the 500 block of 19 Street South and a commercial business in the 1700 block of 31 Street North on Feb. 8, 2022.

Police reportedly found drugs with a street value of about $3,000, including 34 grams of methamphetamine and 2.2 grams of psilocybin, also known as mushrooms. Police also seized three firearms, ammunition, $1,900 in cash from the proceeds of crime, and stolen property, including a motorcycle and another vehicle with a total value of about $2,400.
