Second drug seizure made on Wednesday

Drumheller RCMP made their second drug bust in one week, searching a Drumheller residence to find a small amount of marijuana and pills believed to be Dialudid on Wednesday.

On January 26, a drug related search warrant was executed on a residence at 160 1st Street West in Drumheller. 

"There's always constant pressure to get drugs off the street," says Corporal Mike Black, after saying RCMP don't believe this seizure is related to the one made Monday, where $4,500 worth of marijuana, cocaine, hydromorphone, and an undetermined substance, were found in a Drumheller residence.

Andrew Edwards, 29, has been charged with nine violations including seven breeches of previously issued court and probation orders, as well as being in possession of the previously mentioned drugs. Edwards appeared in court Friday morning.

RCMP say investigations associated with the residence, occupants, and visitors is ongoing. Further arrests are anticipated, said police.

"There are always drugs in town, and we encourage people to call us or Crime Stoppers with any information," said Black.

Dilaudid is a trade name for hydromorphone, the same drug seized during the bust of another Drumheller residence on Monday.
