UPDATE: The Estevan Police Service reported that the man charged following a Wednesday-night arrest is 36-year-old Adam Jaleta of Regina.

Police officially announced charges of:

  • trafficking cocaine
  • possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking
  • and possession of proceeds of crime under $5,000.

Police initially reported that the possession of proceeds of crime charge was over $5,000.

Jaleta made his first court appearance on Thursday and remains in custody to speak to his charges at a later date, according to police.

The Estevan Police Service charged a man last night after they say he was found with crack cocaine, powdered cocaine, and proceeds of crime.

Sgt. Evan Handley said the EPS arrested the 36-year-old Regina man with Criminal Investigation Division and their Drug and Intelligence Unit.

Police did not identify the man, as of the time of publication. He's been charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking and possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000.

"He's been held in cells and more information will follow today from our drug and intel unit," said Handley.

The Regina Police Service also had warrants out for the man, which the EPS arrested him on too.
