Lawyer for couple arrested by N.B. RCMP gang unit asks for adjournment

·1 min read

Two people arrested by the North Battleford RCMP gang unit were scheduled to elect in court on Jan. 18 how they want to be tried but their matters were adjourned at the request of defence.

Danielle Becker, 36, of Saskatoon, and Tyson Goller, 33, of North Battleford, are now scheduled to appear in North Battleford Provincial Court on Feb. 22.

The two were arrested Sept. 10 after the RCMP Gang Task Force/Street Enforcement Team raided a residence on the 1300 block of 96 Street in North Battleford.

At the residence police say they found 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 charges against Becker and Goller haven't been proven in court.

Anyone with information about 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).
