B.C. Man Wanted in Connection to Grande Prairie Drug Bust

Grande Prairie… An alleged drug dealer with ties to B.C.’s lower mainland is being sought by Alberta Law Enforcement Response Teams (ALERT) following a Grande Prairie drug seizure.

Michael Robin Edward Douglas, 27, is the subject of a province-wide warrant following his alleged role in a Grande Prairie drug trafficking operation. Douglas is wanted on a variety of drug and weapons charges and anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact police or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Douglas is one of two B.C. men connected to an alleged Grande Prairie drug trafficking operation. Christopher Kent Ottie, a 30-year-old Surrey man, was arrested when ALERT Grande Prairie and Grande Prairie RCMP members executed search warrants at two area homes on September 18th.

The two search warrants resulted in the seizure of cocaine, heroin, fentanyl, and marihuana, worth an estimated $57,000, along with a .40 caliber handgun and nearly $10,000 in cash proceeds of crime. The exact quantity of drugs seized includes:

  • 248 grams of cocaine;
  • 73 grams of heroin;
  • 172 grams of marihuana;
  • 25 fentanyl tablets.

The search warrants were part of a three-month drug trafficking investigation.

Ottie was charged with 13 drug and weapons related offences and is scheduled to appear in court on September 29th.

ALERT was established and is funded by the Alberta Government and is a compilation of the province’s most sophisticated law enforcement resources committed to tackling serious and organized crime. Nearly 400 municipal police, RCMP, and sheriffs work in ALERT.
