- Trafficking in a controlled substance (methamphetamine)
- Trafficking in a controlled substance (cocaine)
- Dangerous operation of motor vehicle
- Flight from police
- Resisting arrest
Following judicial hearings, the 32-year-old male was remanded into custody and is scheduled to appear in Cold Lake Provincial Court on June 23, 2021, and the 18-year-old female was released on conditions and is scheduled to appear in Cold Lake Provincial court on July 14, 2021.
