According to a press release, members of the Estevan RCMP Combined Traffic Services Unit, along with other agencies, made a major drug arrest in Arcola.
"From February 7, 2018, to June 20, 2018," the release read, "Members of the Estevan RCMP Combined Traffic Services Unit, Carlyle RCMP, and Weyburn RCMP executed a series of search warrants in Arcola targeting the trafficking of methamphetamine and other drugs."
Nancy Williamson, 43, from Arcola, SK, was arrested. She faces the following charges:
Conspiracy to traffic methamphetamine,
possession of heroin
possession of psilocybin
possession of LSD
proceeds of crime over $5000.00
and two counts of possession of a prohibited weapon.
"Police have seized to date, drugs including: more than 130 grams of methamphetamine, a quantity greater than 60 grams of cocaine, 4 grams of psilocybin, 7 squares of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), 77 grams of gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB), $5000.00 cash, brass knuckles, and a butterfly knife. The drugs seized have been verified by Health Canada."
The RCMP are especially concerned with the fact that GHB, which is more commonly known as the date rape drug was found.
"GHB can be poured into alcoholic beverages and result in the loss of consciousness. This makes bar patrons more vulnerable and susceptible to various types of abuse. The public is reminded to be cautious when consuming beverages in public establishments, be aware of the location of your drinks, and don't accept drinks given to you by strangers."
Williamson was remanded in custody and will make her next court appearance August 7, 2018, in Weyburn, SK. The RCMP noted that additional charges could be expected.
