Red Deer search warrant results in drug seizures

  • Jul. 23, 2014 4:48 p.m.

On July 17, ALERT (Alberta Law Enforcement Response Teams), Police Dog Services and Red Deer RCMP executed a Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA) search warrant at a residence in the Kentwood neighbourhood in Red Deer.

Police searched the residence and an associated truck, took three men into custody, and seized numerous controlled substances that had been packaged for resale.

Drugs seized included several grams of heroin, approximately 39 grams of cocaine (both cocaine HCl and ‘crack’ cocaine), approximately 13 grams of methamphetamine, 15 Oxycodone tablets, approximately 500 ml of GHB (also known as the ‘date rape’ drug), plus over a 1,000 assorted pills that have yet to be identified.

Police also seized three canisters of mace/pepper spray, three replica firearms and over $3000 in cash that was seized as proceeds of crime.

The three men were taken into custody without incident.

David Clark, 33, has been charged with CDSA 5(2) – Possession of a Schedule I substance: Methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking; CDSA 5(2) – Possession of a Schedule I substance: Gamma-Hydroxybutanoic Acid (GHB) for the purpose of trafficking; CDSA 5(2) – Possession of a Schedule I substance: Cocaine for the purpose of trafficking; CDSA 5(2) – Possession of a Schedule I substance: Heroin for the purpose of trafficking; CDSA 5(2) – Possession of a Schedule I substance: Oxycodone for the purpose of trafficking; Criminal Code 91(2) – Possess a prohibited device: pepper spray X 3 and Criminal Code 117.01(1) – Possess a prohibited weapon while prohibited from doing so X 6.

Clark will appear in court on July 24th in Alberta Provincial Court in Red Deer.

The names of the other two men will be released once the charges against them have been sworn before the courts.

Wherever drug trafficking exists, there’s the potential for increased criminal activity and violence, as well as additional economic costs and other health and safety risks to the community.
