Posted: December 30, 2020
Edmonton… Thousands of pills and other illicit drugs were seized as part of an ALERT drug investigation in north Edmonton. More than $200,000 in drugs and cash was seized.
ALERT Edmonton’s organized crime and gang team made the seizure on December 9, 2020. The Edmonton Police Service helped search a home in the Castle Downs neighborhood, which police allege was connected to suspected drug activity.
“This home was operating as a haphazard pharmacy with a range of harmful substances. Not only does it present dangers that are inherent with the drug trade, but there’s an added risk to the user with the possibility of cross-contamination,” said Staff Sgt. Blayne Eliuk, ALERT Edmonton.
Inside the home, ALERT seized:
- 550 grams of cocaine;
- 1,600 grams of a cocaine buffing agent;
- 1,814 oxycodone pills;
- 2,220 benzodiazepine pills;
- 433 amphetamine pills;
- 96 grams of MDMA;
- 4 grams of ketamine;
- 3 litres of gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB);
- 422 grams of psilocybin mushrooms;
- 1,318 grams of cannabis; and
- $33,760 cash.
Two Edmonton men were arrested on December 31, 2020. Davin Greenfield, 40, and Steven McAuley, 27, have each been charged with multiple drug-related offences.
Members of the public who suspect drug or gang activity in their community can call local police, or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Crime Stoppers is always anonymous.
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.
