Police officers in the Red Deer RCMP GIS drug unit conducted the search warrant on the hotel room at 11 p.m. on Feb. 2nd and took two male suspects into custody without incident. RCMP seized fentanyl, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and GHB, as well as numerous items consistent with drug trafficking.
