More than half a kilogram of cocaine has been seized from a home in Grande Prairie. The Alberta Law Enforcement Teams searched a home in Mountview with the help of local RCMP on April 13th.
The bust is the result of a four month investigation, that started in January after ALERT heard about suspected drug trafficking in the community. Acting Inspector John Wilson says they seized 510 grams of cocaine, as well as more than $20,000 in cash and what officers consider to be evidence of drug trafficking like packaging materials, scales, and multiple cellphones.
“This is a significant amount of cocaine to take out of circulation in Grande Prairie. But we know there are more drugs out there on the streets, and we will continue to pursue drug dealers who pose a risk to the safety of the community.”
28 year old Ryan Lindgrin, 30 year old Brodie House, and 32 year old Patrick Rabbitt have been charged with drug possession and trafficking offences. House and Rabbitt have been released on bail, while Lindgrin remains in custody. He had an outstanding warrant for drug offences from B.C.
