A 43-year-old Leth­bridge man charged with traf­fick­ing heroin and metham­phetamine, among other crimes, pleaded guilty to two breaches of his re­lease con­di­tions on Fri­day in Leth­bridge pro­vin­cial court.

Cordelle Daniel Bad Arm was sen­tenced to seven days in jail for each of the breaches and was told to pay a $100 vic­tim sur­charge for each con­vic­tion.

An­other charge of possession of a pro­hib­ited firearm was with­drawn by the Crown.

Bad Arm is fac­ing other charges, in­clud­ing two counts of possession of a con­trolled sub­stance for the pur­pose of traf­fick­ing, possession of stolen prop­erty and possession of the pro­ceeds of crime. He will re­turn to court on Jan.10 and is ex­pected to en­ter pleas on his re­main­ing charges then.

On Nov. 3, a mem­ber of the Down­town Polic­ing Unit was con­duct­ing a bike patrol along the 600 block of 8 Street South when he ob­served a man in­side a parked ve­hi­cle. The of­fi­cer rec­og­nized the sub­ject as hav­ing out­stand­ing war­rants.

Bad Arm was sub­se­quently ar­rested with­out in­ci­dent, po­lice said. Dur­ing a search in­ci­den­tal to the ar­rest, po­lice say they re­cov­ered quan­ti­ties of metham­phetamine, heroin, cash and drug traf­fick­ing para­pher­na­lia such as scales, pack­ag­ing sup­plies and cell­phones. In ad­di­tion, the man was also in possession of two high-end bikes that were de­ter­mined to be stolen.

Bad Arm was re­leased on $1,000 cash bail for those charges on Nov. 9.
