On April 7, 2016 Pincher Creek RCMP executed a drug search warrant on a local hotel room in the town of Pincher Creek, Alberta.  Four Pincher Creek residents were arrested and face numerous charges under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.  The suspected drugs seized include cocaine, crack cocaine, methamphetamine, and heroin, as well as numerous pills.


David Bradley Priest, 54 yrs old, faces eight counts, one charge of producing a controlled substance, four counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking a controlled drug, and four counts of unlawful possession of a controlled drug,

Meranda White, 33 yrs old, faces eight counts, one charge of producing a controlled substance, four counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking a controlled drug, and four counts of unlawful possession of a controlled drug, and one count of driving while unauthorized,

Kathryn Chapin, 30 yrs old, faces eight counts, one charge of producing a controlled substance, four counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking a controlled drug, and four counts of unlawful possession of a controlled drug, and one count of possession of a prohibited weapon,

Natalie Ann Newton, 46 yrs old, faces eight counts, four counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking a controlled drug, and four counts of unlawful possession of a controlled drug.

The four persons charged were released on numerous conditions, and have a first appearance date in Pincher Creek Provincial Court in the next several weeks.

Over 3 ounces of suspected Crack Cocaine was seized, as well as a small quantity of what is believed to be Methamphetamine, and Heroin.

All the suspected drugs will be sent to the lab to confirm what they are.

This quantity of hard drugs is a big concern for all Emergency Services in Pincher Creek and the surrounding communities.   Anyone using these types of drugs has a huge impact on the entire community, families and the Emergency responders that have to attend to all the problems that come with the use of illegal drugs.
