UPDATE: Five year sentence for Grande Prairie drug dealer

A woman at the centre of drug trafficking investigation will spend the next five years behind bars.

Alberta Law Enforcement Response Teams Communications Manager Mike Tucker says they arrested 32 year old Mahasin Amanda Hadija at her apartment on on April 14, 2013.

“Earlier in the day, Hadija had transported a shipment of drugs from Vancouver. Inside, they found 1.2 kilograms of cocaine, 500 grams of methamphetamine, and three firearms, including two sawed-off shotguns.”

Three men were also arrested at the time, but it’s believed she was the leader of the operation.

She was sentenced Tuesday and was also given a 10 year firearms ban.

Tucker says her stiff sentence shows ALERT’s commitment to getting drugs off the street, and hopes it sends a message.

“Five years in prison, that’s a long time for someone to behind bars. This should really be a deterrence for other criminal entrepreneurs out there to get out of the game.”

Hadija was found guilty of several charges surrounding cocaine and methamphetamine trafficking, as well as possession of a prohibited weapon and proceeds of crime.
