Lethbridge Police have charged a 33-year-old Raymond man after fentanyl, methamphetamine and cocaine were found during a traffic stop earlier on June 21.

Police with the property crimes unit and crime suppression team concluded a short-term investigation into suspected drug trafficking activity, and on June 21 they stopped a vehicle in a westside parking lot.

A man and woman were taken into custody, and during a search of the vehicle police seized 32 grams of fentanyl, 105 grams of cocaine and 48 grams of methamphetamine, worth about $15,600 on the street. Police also seized $15,390 in cash, considered the proceeds of crime.

Andrew Glenn Whiteford, 33, of Raymond, is charged with three counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking and one count of possession of the proceeds of crime over $5,000.

Following a judicial interim release hearing, Whiteford was released from custody, and he is scheduled to appear in court July 20.

The woman was released without charges.
