LLOYDMINSTER – A man arrested in a drug and firearms trafficking investigation that left one man dead and an officer injured with a shot to the head has been denied bail.
Following a show cause hearing in Lloydminster court Thursday, Judge Kim Young denied 18-year-old Delaney Angus bail. Angus appeared by telephone from Saskatoon Correctional Centre.
Crown Prosecutor Kofi Nkruma-Young opposed Angus’ release. Defence Cara Hill requested a ban on publication of the contents of the bail hearing, which Judge Young granted.
Delaney Angus, 20-year-old Odell Angus, and 25-year-old Laquita Angus were arrested Feb. 26 after police raided homes in Lloydminster and an industrial building in Waseca. This came after a four-month investigation by the North Battleford RCMP Gang Task Force. Police say that cocaine, methamphetamine, fentanyl, and firearms were being trafficked in and around North Battleford.
According to police, gunfire broke out at the industrial building and Trent Angus was shot and killed by police. An officer was shot in the head and received a non-life threatening injury. The RCMP officer is a member of Saskatchewan RCMP’s Police Dog Services,
Delaney Angus was charged with resisting arrest, obstruction of a peace officer, and failing to comply with a release order. The charges against Delaney Angus haven't been proven in court.
