Lydia Guimond, 35 years of age, was arrested and remanded into custody on a charge of Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking. A 28-year-old male was also arrested on scene and released for a future court date.

The following day, as a result of an ongoing investigation, not related to the previous evening's search, officers executed a search warrant at a residence located on Highway 11 on the Fort Alexander First Nation as well as on a seized vehicle located in Selkirk.

The search of the residence and vehicle yielded an additional 29 grams of crystal methamphetamine, 19 grams of cocaine, over $8000 in cash, illicit pills, a firearm and drug-related paraphernalia.
