On Nov. 29, at approximately midnight, officers from the Estevan Police Service and the Estevan RCMP executed simultaneous search warrants at a motel room in Midale and a residence in Bienfait.

Four males were taken into custody without incident. Police seized a quantity of cocaine and methamphetamine. Money and other items used for the distribution of cocaine were also seized from both properties.

Jeremy Curtis Iser, 28, and Nico Andrew Amaro, 25, of Chilliwack, B.C., have been charged with trafficking cocaine and possession for the purpose of trafficking cocaine under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.

Iser was also charged with possession of property obtained by crime less than $5,000 under the Criminal Code.

Two other males from Estevan and Bienfait, aged 41 and 38, will be charged with possessing cocaine and methamphetamine. They have been released and will appear in court at a future date.

The charges for the men from Estevan and Bienfait have not been sworn in as of yet, so their names cannot be released.

Iser and Amaro have been remanded into custody and will appear in Estevan Provincial Court on Monday.

“We say it time and time again that those who choose to traffic drugs will eventually be caught. The Estevan Police Service continues to make drug enforcement a priority,” said Police Chief Paul Ladouceur.
