Red Deer members of the Priority Crimes Task Force arrested a Red Deer man on June 17th and seized more than 10,000 prescription pills and over $15,000 cash during a search warrant executed at his Red Deer home the same day.

The task force opened a drug trafficking investigation in early June after receiving intelligence from the community about suspicious activity at the residence. Red Deer GIS members arrested the suspect during a traffic stop in the parking lot of the Port O’Call Mall in downtown Red Deer at noon on June 17th; the search warrant was executed simultaneously on a residence on Wells Street, the garage and two vehicles associated with the suspect.

Allie Gader, 56, of Red Deer has been charged with four counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking and possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000.

Anyone with information that will assist RCMP with this investigation or any other drug trafficking activity in the region is asked to call Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it online at
