YORKTON, Sask. _ A First Nation band councillor accused of selling drugs has been released on bail.

Clarence Papequash, 64, of the Key First Nation was in Yorkton provincial court today.

Papequash is charged with drug trafficking, firearm offences and one count of possession of property obtained by crime.

His next court appearance is set for March 14 in Kamsack.

Mounties executed a search warrant last week at a home on the reserve east of Saskatoon and Papequash was suspended as a councillor by the chief after charges were laid.

Papequash resigned as chief of Key First Nation in 2014 when he was given a six-month conditional sentence for selling a morphine pill to a man working for the RCMP.

He was elected as a band councillor in October.
