Calgary… More than half a million dollars’ worth of drugs and cash was seized as the result of a coordinated investigation involving ALERT organized crime teams in Calgary and Medicine Hat.
ALERT seized methamphetamine, fentanyl, cocaine and other substances, alongside four firearms, after two Calgary homes were searched on January 23, 2020. One person was arrested, who ALERT alleges was involved in drug trafficking in the Calgary area.
“We believe this individual may have also been involved in supplying drugs to surrounding communities,” said Insp. Shawn Wallace, ALERT Calgary. “This is a great example of how our ALERT teams share intelligence and provide coverage across the entire province to stamp out complex organized crime threats.”

Four firearms were also seized, including two shotguns and two pistols. The firearms will be subject to further forensic analysis.
