Calgary police have arrested a 31-year-old man they say was trafficking fentanyl in the Sunridge area.

Officers observed "activity consistent with drug trafficking" in the northeast community last Thursday and later pulled the man over while he was driving in the city's northwest.

Inside the vehicle, police found 43 fentanyl pills, multiple cellphones and $1,135 in cash.

The man was charged with possession of fentanyl for the purpose of trafficking, possession of property obtained by crime and two counts of breach of a recognizance.

He is set to appear in court Jan. 20.
