·1 min read

A resolution offer between the Crown and defence for an Alberta man arrested by North Battleford RCMP is on the table.

Defence told the North Battleford Provincial Court on March 11 that he is waiting for instructions from his client Lowen Dieh on the Crown’s offer and asked the matter be adjourned to April 8.

Diehl, 36, was arrested during a traffic stop near North Battleford on Highway 16 on Dec. 7, 2020. When police searched his SUV they found 17 kg of drugs and a large amount of Canadian currency.

Diehl was released from custody in Saskatchewan on Jan. 15, 2021, on $10,000 cash bail and a $10,000 surety. His bail conditions stipulate he must remain at his Alberta home on 24-hour house arrest.
