Hay River RCMP seize drugs from house near 2007 shooting
Rachel Martel faces drug charges, breaches of probation
A Hay River woman who has allegedly allowed her house to be used as a drug den is again facing multiple drug charges.
Rachel Martel, 49, has been charged with multiple counts of drug possession and breaches to her probation after RCMP searched a home in the community on Thursday.
They found three grams of crack cocaine, two grams of marijuana and one gram of cannabis resin, otherwise known as hash. Police also discovered a large amount of cash and a firearm.
Martel remains in custody and will appear in court Tuesday.
Two other Hay River Residents were also charged in Thursday's incident. They are set to appear in court in Hay River on July 21.
Rachel Martel was renting the residence in October 2007 when Const. Christopher Worden was shot and killed near the house.
Emrah Bulatci was leaving Martel's house when Worden stopped him and tried to search him. Bulatci ran and after a short chase, he shot and killed Worden. Bulatci was convicted of first-degree murder in 2009 for Worden's death.
