On October 4, 2019 in the evening hours, Drumheller RCMP entered into an investigation involving possible offences under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.
A vehicle was stopped which resulted in the arrest of two adult males. Evidence discovered during a search of the vehicle provided grounds to believe that the males were involved in the trafficking of drugs.
Police seized quantities of individually prepared Methamphetamine, Cocaine, Oxycodone and suspected Fentanyl as well as other evidence supporting the charges. Both males were already bound by court imposed release conditions in relation to other matters and have been charged additionally with breaching those orders.
One of the males (27) from Three Hills was released on court documents with strict conditions and a court date of October 25, 2019. The second male (35) also from Three Hills was held for a Judicial Interim Release hearing.
