WESTLOCK – A Westlock woman, who RCMP say they caught with close to 50 grams of meth in her home, now faces charges of drug trafficking and possession of unstamped cigarettes following a Nov. 12 raid.
In a Nov. 18 release, Westlock RCMP report that on Oct. 16 they launched an investigation into allegations of drug trafficking and further investigation resulted in them obtaining a search warrant for a residence located in the 103rd Street area in Westlock — on Saturday, Nov. 12, they executed the search warrant.
There police say they recovered 49.64 grams of methamphetamine, 1.44 grams of cocaine, 15 codeine pills, 31 packs of unstamped cigarettes and $3,293 in cash.
Lana Kaye Wolfe, 44, faces four counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking and a single charge of possession of unstamped cigarettes and is scheduled to make her first appearance in Westlock Provincial Court Nov. 23.
Westlock RCMP Cpl. Riley Sutherland, who previously served in the Barrhead area, said the charge of unstamped smokes is fairly unique to the area.
“It would be for non-taxed cigarettes and it’s certainly less common in our area and more common along the border,” she said.
