Inmate sentenced for drug possession


An inmate at the Drumheller Institution had 90 more days tacked on to his sentence after pleading guilty to possession of drugs.

Steven Thorne appeared in provincial court in Drumheller on Friday, July 21. Originally charged with possession for the purposes of trafficking, he pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of possession of cannabis resin.

On February 17 of this year, corrections officers observed movement outside his cell and Thorne conversing with other inmates. Officers ordered him out of his cell and found 12 globs of hash oil folded inside a playing card.

The federal prosecutor and defense agreed to a 90-day sentence consecutive to any sentence he is currently serving.
