Four people are facing charges and four children have been removed from their home after police discovered fentanyl and other drugs at a residence in Standoff on the southern Alberta Blood Tribe reserve.

Officers with the Blood Tribe police force executed a search warrant at the home early Friday morning, turning up almost 100 fentanyl tablets, as well as a small amount of cocaine and more than $4,000 believed to be proceeds of crime.

Blood Tribe Child Protection Services officials removed four children from the home.

Two 35-year-old men and two women, aged 24 and 20, were arrested. 

They each face numerous drug possession and tracking charges, as well as putting a child in immediate danger of exposure to drugs and drug trafficking.
