Lethbridge man facing drug trafficking charges

Members of the ALERT Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit-Lethbridge have charged a 31-year-old man with drug offences after cocaine and cash were seized from a westside apartment building.

 On March 5, 2014 CFSEU officers executed a search warrant under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act at a unit in an apartment building along Berkeley Place West. One male was located and arrested without incident and police recovered approximately 40 grams of cocaine, $1,425 in cash, drug paraphernalia and an imitation firearm.

 The estimated street value of the drugs is approximately $4,040.

 Walid Mohamed Nour, 31, of Lethbridge, is charged with possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, possession of the proceeds of crime and possession of a prohibited weapon. He was remanded to appear in court today.

 CFSEU-Lethbridge is an ALERT team established and funded by the Government of Alberta to bring together the province’s most sophisticated law enforcement resources to tackle serious and organized crime. Nearly 400 municipal police, RCMP, and sheriffs work for ALERT.
