A 31-year-old Regina man has been charged with several drug related offenses following a lengthy investigation by the Estevan Police Service Drug/Intelligence Unit.
On Thursday, March 15 at approximately 2:30 p.m, members of the Estevan Police Service Containment Warrant Entry Team (CWET), Drug/Intelligence Unit and members from the Estevan RCMP executed a search warrant at a residence in Bienfait where one male was taken into custody without incident.
Stemming from the investigation, it was determined the male lied to police about his name when he was arrested for possession of marijuana on January 10, 2018. Once police confirmed his identity it was noted that the male was currently on an Undertaking from a Judge, which included multiple conditions. There was also an outstanding warrant for his arrest from Immigration Canada. The male also failed to attend his first court appearance for that charge.
Christian Karuranga of Regina is facing charges of trafficking cocaine, possession of marijuana over 30 grams, possession obtained by crime under $5,000, and possession of a prohibited weapon.
He is also charged with obstructing a peace officer, failure to appear in court and failing to comply with an undertaking.
Karuranga was remanded into custody and made his first court appearance on Monday, March 19th.
