Two men are facing multiple charges after a police search last Friday that resulted in the injury of two Prince Albert police officers as well as the seizure of cocaine.
On Friday police issued a search warrant at a home on the 500 block of 14th Street NW in Prince Albert.
P.A. police were also conducting a related traffic stop at the time when the vehicle police had pulled over tried to leave the scene. As the vehicle tried to flee, one police officer was dragged by the vehicle and another was hit by a trailer being towed behind it.
A canine search found evidence that it is said to have been thrown from the vehicle after it left the traffic stop. The search of the residence turned up other evidence as well, including 77 grams of cocaine, $3,000 in cash, a cash counting device and a scale, according to police.
Both officers involved in the traffic stop received minor injuries. One of the injured police officers was treated at the scene, while another was taken to hospital and later released.
Police have charged Landon Aydt, 27, with cocaine possession for the purpose of trafficking, marijuana possession, possession of property obtained by crime, flight from police and two counts of aggravated assault against a peace officer.
Brendan Duguay, 24, is facing charges of cocaine possession for the purpose of trafficking, possession of property obtained by crime and possession of marijuana.
