Foley reappears in Drumheller provincial court Jan. 11. Still facing charges out of Stettler

A Big Valley man facing weapons and drug charges has been denied bail again.

Victor Charles Foley, 33, reappears in Drumheller provincial court Jan. 11 to enter a plea.

Foley – who was out on bail on charges out of Stettler – was arrested by Drumheller RCMP Sept. 25 with an assault rifle, a semi-automatic pistol, a shotgun and drugs during a traffic stop in Drumheller.

According to Cpl. Rachel Pergunas, Drumheller RCMP arrested Foley and Jaime Nichole Ryan, 34, of Drumheller, and charged them with eight weapons offences and two drug charges. Foley is also charged with driving while suspended.

Foley tried getting bail Dec. 14, 2018, but was denied. He was also denied bail in September when he was arrested and again in October.

Foley still faces charges from Feb. 7, 2018, when Stettler RCMP and the Red Deer RCMP Police Dog Unit executed a search warrant at a Stettler residence. Stettler EMS was on stand-by because police believed fentanyl was present. During that raid, police seized a quantity of cocaine and crack cocaine. They arrested Foley and charged him with possession of stolen property.

Foley was released on bail for the Stettler charges when he appeared as a prisoner in Stettler provincial court Aug. 23. His bail at that time was set at $3,000. He was arrested again in September in Drumheller.
