STONEY NAKODA – Two men were arrested and are facing multiple charges after police seized firearms, including handguns, and methamphetamine at a residence on the Stoney Nakoda First Nation Thursday (May 7).
Carlyle Holloway was charged with 58 offences, including 55 that are weapons-related, possession of methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking, and two charges for breach of conditions. He was remanded into custody and is scheduled to appear in court in Cochrane Tuesday (May 12), according to an RCMP press release.
Tommie Borris Holloway was charged with possession of methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking, and four weapons-related offences. He was released on bail and is scheduled to appear in court July 21.
Two other individuals are facing charges and were released by RCMP.
The search warrant was executed on the home after RCMP responded to a complaint of a male with a firearm at that address.
A search resulted in 63 grams of methamphetamine seized and multiple firearms.
"These arrests demonstrate the close relationship between firearms and the drug trade,” said Cpl. Troy Savinkoff in the press release.
“Cochrane RCMP encourages the public to call police if they have information on people they suspect are trafficking in illegal drugs.”
Savinkoff added Carlyle is known to police.
