Piikani Nation RCMP arrested an unnamed 24-year-old female following a Jan. 8 search of a home in Brocket. RCMP executed the search warrant after receiving several anonymous tips through the Crime Stoppers program.

Found in the residence were ½ ounce of suspected crack cocaine, multiple unconfirmed prescription medications and drug paraphernalia.

A charge of possession for the purpose of trafficking in a controlled substance has been laid relating to the cocaine.

The woman was released on her own undertaking and will make her first court appearance Mar. 7 in Pincher Creek.
