50,000 Cocaine Seizure in Lethbridge


Lethbridge… More than $50,000 worth of cocaine was seized from a 21-year-old Lethbridge woman by Alberta Law Enforcement Response Teams (ALERT). The drug seizure marks the Lethbridge team’s largest in almost a year.

ALERT Lethbridge, an integrated team made up Lethbridge Regional Police Service and RCMP members, made the cocaine seizure in the early morning hours of May 27th. The accused is believed to have ties to a local drug ring.

Brittany Twigg, 21, was arrested in a vehicle stop in the area of University Drive and Mic Mac Boulevard West. She was found in possession of 83 grams of powder cocaine and 500 grams of crack cocaine, worth an estimated $58,420. Twigg faces to charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking.

The bust is the ALERT Lethbridge team’s largest since July 2013 when 1.8 kilograms of cocaine was seized in a series of five search warrants.
