A Medicine Hat man who sold methamphetamine and heroin to undercover officers received a sentence of 30 months.

Lee Michael Knourek, 29, entered guilty pleas Thursday at the Medicine Hat Provincial Courthouse to multiple drug trafficking counts, and was granted 78 days of pretrial custody toward his sentence.

The charges against Knourek are from two cities — Medicine Hat and Edmonton.

On the Edmonton charges, undercover fficsers twice arranged by phone to purchase meth from Knourek in March 2017. In one of the arrangements, Knourek sent a woman to make the exchange. Police later identified they accused, but were unable to locate him after that.

In December 2017, Medicine Hat police received information that he was selling meth locally.

Undercover officers proceeded to make four different arrangements with him to make purchases of meth and heroin. In total, 7.7 grams of meth were purchased and 0.2 grams of heroin.
