LETHBRIDGE - A 35-year-old man has pleaded guilty to two charges in connection with a north Lethbridge drug bust and weapons seizure Feb. 26, 2018.
Daylan Strembesky appeared in Lethbridge Provincial Court via CCTV from the Lethbridge Correctional Centre where he's in custody on other, unrelated charges.
In a joint Crown-Defense submission, both parties asked that a sentence of 24-months be handed down on a charge of possession for the purpose of trafficking and a six-month concurrent sentence for breach of conditions.
Several other charges related to the matter were withdrawn.
The defense asked for the two-year sentence to be served in a Federal prison so that Strembesky, who has issues with drug addiction, can get access to programs and tools to help him deal with his issues.
Justice J. Maher accepted the joint submission.
On Feb. 26, 2018, Lethbridge Police's organized crime and gang team executed a search warrant on a home in the 400 block of 20 St. N.
The home was brought to the attention of police because residents were concerned about possible drug dealing. The house is also located one block away from an elementary school.
During a search of the home, ALERT said it seized a loaded, .32 calibre handgun, ammunition, replica guns and bladed weapons.
Police also found 5.4 grams of methamphetamine, cannabis, unknown pills and drug paraphernalia.
Two others were charged in relation to the search, including 30-year-old Billie-Anne Paulette and 20-year-old Pedro Friesen of Taber.
