Big Valley man denied bail again in Drumheller court

Victor Foley faces drugs, weapons charges

A Big Valley man arrested with an assault rifle, a semi-automatic pistol, a shotgun and drugs during a traffic stop in Drumheller Sept. 25 was denied bail a second time.

Victor Charles Foley, 33, appeared in Drumheller provincial court Oct. 19 and was denied bail.

At the time of his Sept. 25 arrest, Foley was already on bail for charges out of Stettler.

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 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 but was arrested again in August in Drumheller for breaching conditions of his release. He appeared as a prisoner in Stettler provincial court Aug. 23, and his bail at that time was set at $3,000.

Foley reappears in Drumheller provincial court Oct. 26 to answer to the drug and weapons charges out of Drumheller.

The charges against Foley haven’t been proven in a court of law.
