The names of the two southeast Saskatchewan residents charged in a drug bust last week have been released.

Gregory Gress, a 41-year-old man from Estevan, has been charged with possession of methamphetamine and cocaine. Garrett Olney, 38, of Bienfait, has been charged with possession of methamphetamine and failing to comply with his release conditions.

They were apprehended in the drug bust on Friday, along with Jeremy Curtis Iser, 28, and Nico Andrew Amaro, 25, of Chilliwack, B.C.,

Iser and Amaro 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.

Gress and Olney’s names were not released at the same time as Iser and Amaro last week because the charges had not been sworn.

All four were in court Monday. They were released with conditions and will be back in court at a later date.

None of the charges have been proven in court.
