Calgary…Two men face numerous charges after police wrapped up a four-month investigation into a cocaine trafficking operation in Calgary.

The Calgary Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit (CFSEU-Calgary), an integrated team made up Calgary Police Service and RCMP members, executed two search warrants in early February; one at a residential property in southwest Calgary and the other at a business.

Inside the residence in the 2400 block of 17 Street, police found 13 grams of cocaine, 20 morphine pills, and a small amount of amphetamine, marihuana, LSD, and hashish. Investigators also seized $1,200 in cash, digital scales, cell phones, packaging material, and a physician’s prescription pad.

At the Inglewood business property, Big Johnson Ink, police located a loaded .32 caliber semi-automatic pistol with ammunition.

Terry EIDE, age 29, of Calgary is charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking both cocaine and morphine, possession of proceeds of crime, simple possession of marihuana, cannabis resin, ecstasy, dextroamphetamine and LSD, possession of a weapon dangerous to public peace, and possession of stolen property. He has been released from custody with strict conditions including house arrest. He will appear in court again on February 22.

Jeffery SULLEY, age 29, of Calgary is charged with multiple firearms offences and has been released from custody with strict conditions including house arrest. He will appear in court again on February 27.
