A Prince Albert man charged with trafficking drugs while out on bail was denied bail Tuesday.

Kole Marchant, 28, was initially caught up in Project Kahuna, a five month investigation that seized over a kilogram of cocaine in November 2016. He was let out on bail and released to his father’s house in a rural area near Prince Albert. The judge imposed a curfew and placed him under electronic monitoring.

But police charged Marchant again on April 21. They seized 246 grams of cocaine, 4 grams of marijuana and thousands in cash.

Now, Marchant is facing trafficking charges and multiple counts of breaching his bail conditions. On Tuesday, his case came before a judge in Prince Albert Provincial Court.

This time, bail was denied.
