2,000 fentanyl pills seized in Grande Prairie drug bust
A Grande Prairie man faces trafficking charges after a stash of illegal narcotics, including hundreds of fentanyl pills, was seized from a rural property in the city's south end.
Following an investigation that began last month, RCMP executed a search warrant on Nov. 23 at a residence in the Countryside South neighbourhood.
During their search of the property, officers seized $9,000 cash, a stolen handgun loaded with ammunition, 56 grams of crack cocaine, crystal methamphetamine, marijuana and more than 2,000 fentanyl pills.
Three people were arrested.
A 47-year-old man was charged with four offences under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act and five Criminal Code offences in relation to the stolen firearm.
The bust is the latest in a string of fentanyl-related arrests in Grande Prairie.
