A 38 year-old male has been arrested after an investigation into drug trafficking in Regina.
On the evening of November 4, 2017, during investigation, police observed a male, recognized as wanted on an outstanding warrant by Prince Albert Police Service, attending an apartment on the 1700 block of Hamilton Street. Police members, including canine members, were deployed to the area with activated emergency equipment. A uniformed officer encountered the male at a security door, but the male did not allow police into the building to make the arrest.
After gaining entry into the building, the male was located hiding in an apartment room, and was arrested on his outstanding warrant. He was also found to be in breach of multiple conditions of an undertaking at the time of his arrest. A search of the male’s vehicle and residence revealed a large quantity of marihuana, and items involved in trafficking.
