ALERT charges one as part of national organized crime investigation

Calgary… The Alberta Law Enforcement Response Teams has charged one man in connection with Project Marvel, a Toronto Police Service organized crime investigation.

In the early morning hours of December 13, ALERT’s Combined Special Forces Enforcement Unit-Calgary (CFSEU-Calgary) executed a search warrant at a Calgary residence located in the 1700 block of 38 Street SE. One man was taken into custody without incident. The team seized cans of bear spray and mace, along with over $9,000 cash.

“Knowing that organized crime is not restricted by provincial boundaries, ALERT understands the benefit of collaboration when it comes to tackling these issues,” said CFSEU-Calgary Inspector Gerry Francois. “ALERT will continue to lead and assist operations that disrupt criminal activity across Alberta.”

Ibrahim JALLOH, a 22-year-old Calgary resident, is charged with possession of a prohibited weapon and possession of property obtained by crime. JALLOH is also charged with breach of a conditional sentencing order, stemming from a previous trafficking conviction.

ALERT is an umbrella organization established by the Government of Alberta to bring together the province’s most sophisticated law enforcement resources to tackle serious and organized crime. Close to 400 municipal police, RCMP and sheriffs work for ALERT.
