A pair arrested on drug charges last month have had their cases adjourned until Feb. 14.
John James St. Jean was picked up on Dec. 12 and charged with possession with the purpose of trafficking during a Ponoka RCMP’s operation to combat street level drug activity.
Also arrested in the operation that day was Michelle Dawn Janzen, who is facing four counts of drug trafficking and one count of possession of property obtained by crime.
The pair appeared separately in Ponoka Provincial Court on Jan. 10 and requested time to find legal representation. Both individuals remain free on their own recognizance.
A man facing charges of assaulting a police officer and uttering death threats remains in custody until his next court appearance on Jan. 24. West Thomas Aldridge, 38 of Ponoka, appeared via CCTV and consented to stay in jail as he applies for legal aid.
Two other men were given until Jan. 31 to find a lawyer or get legal aid to help as they face several serious charges.
Daniel Alex Potts made his first appearance on two counts of assault and one count each of mischief and uttering threats in addition to a traffic ticket for failing to have a valid drivers licence.
Meanwhile, Brayden Omeasoo is facing charges of assault as well as assault causing bodily harm, two counts of unlawful confinement and choking with intent.
