Lloydminster RCMP seized $50,000 worth of methamphetamine and cocaine last Thursday.

RCMP said in a news release Tuesday that a traffic stop at a hotel near 44 Street and the 5400 block in Lloydminster led them to find the occupants and driver of the vehicle were in possession of a large amount of drugs.

Over 400 grams of methamphetamine and cocaine, with an estimated value of $50,000, were seized by Mounties.

Thirty-three-year-old Robin Moccasin faces the following charges:

  • Three counts of failing to comply with release order conditions
  • Two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking
  • Obstructing a peace officer
  • Resisting arrest
  • Identity fraud

Kellie Moccasin, 26, and Leroy Moccasin Jr., 41, have been charged with two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking.

RCMP say Robin was under conditions because of previous large scale drug trafficking charges in March.

All three were released from police custody following a bail hearing and are scheduled to appear in Lloydminster provincial court on May 25.
