Lethbridge Regional Police Make Significant Heroin Bust

 
 

Lethbridge:   A Regional Police drug seizure has kept $100-thousand worth of heroin off Lethbridge streets and lead to the arrest of three city men.

  On Friday, April 8th, the men were arrested near Okotoks after returning from B-C. A search of their vehicle turned up 265-grams of heroin (value $100,100), drug paraphernalia and numerous cell phones. One man also had an undisclosed amount of cash.

   According to Regional Police Inspector Colin Catonio (Criminal Investigation Division), "In my 30 years of policing the market for heroin in Lethbridge has been almost non-existent but, to seize such a substantial quantity destined for our street, suggests that trend may be changing".

  Catonio also stated, "Because heroin has been so uncommon in Lethbridge, there are a lot of in-experienced users and the potential for over-dose deaths is a very serious concern to police".

   All three men charged will appear in court Monday, April 18th.

  Hamish Dryden Roth, 24, of Lethbridge, is charged with possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking and possession of property obtained by crime. Roth has been released from custody.

  William Bryant Hatch, 27, of Lethbridge, is remanded and charged with possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.

   Padan Cassidy Ashcroft, 23, of Lethbridge, is also remanded and charged with possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.
