A couple arrested by the North Battleford RCMP gang unit had more appearances in North Battleford Provincial Court Nov. 30 but the matters were adjourned.

Danielle Becker, 36, of Saskatoon, and Tyson Goller, 33, of North Battleford, were arrested Sept. 10 after the RCMP Gang Task Force/Street Enforcement Team raided a residence in North Battleford on the 1300 block of 96 Street.

At the residence police seized a prohibited handgun, ammunition and other weapons. They also seized about $6,000 in Canadian currency, 276 grams of cocaine, one kg of illicit marijuana, four grams of MDMA and quantities of other unidentified substances believed to be illicit drugs.

Becker and Goller were charged with two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking, possession of property over $5,000 obtained by crime, and several firearms offences.

The Battlefords RCMP Detachment and the North Battleford Provincial General Investigations Section assisted the RCMP gang unit with the arrests. Anyone with information regarding drug trafficking, or any other crime in the Battlefords, is urged to call the North Battleford RCMP at 306-446-1720 or Saskatchewan Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Becker and Goller are scheduled to appear next in North Battleford Provincial Court on Jan. 18, 2021, to elect how they want to be tried.
