Organized Crime Members Arrested in Edmonton

Edmonton… Two members of an organized crime group operating in Edmonton have been arrested following a two-month investigation by Alberta Law Enforcement Response Teams (ALERT).

Corey Huff, 26, and Jordan Murray, 24, were arrested by ALERT Edmonton, with assistance from the Edmonton Police Service and Strathcona County RCMP. Huff and Murray are two members of an organized crime group that figures prominently in the metro Edmonton cocaine trade and has ties to British Columbia. They have been connected to gang-related violence in the past.

The arrests occurred on November 6 and coincided with search warrants being executed at homes in Sherwood Park and southwest Edmonton. Nearly a quarter million worth of drugs was seized from the homes. Cash proceeds of crime totaling $114,000 were seized and will be submitted to the Alberta Government’s Civil Forfeiture Office.

As result of the search warrants, ALERT seized:

  • $114,000 cash proceeds of crime;
  • 1 kilogram of cocaine;
  • 500 grams of Ketamine;
  • 450 grams of hash oil;
  • 56 grams of heroin;
  • 8 kilograms of a cutting agent;
  • Cocaine press and other drug trafficking paraphernalia.

Huff and Murray are facing a total of eight drug-related charges. An associate of the pair, Coleten Garnier, 20, was also arrested in the bust and charged with possession of proceeds of crime and possession for the purpose of trafficking.

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.
