Three men accused of being part of a drug trafficking operation were in Red Deer provincial court on Thursday.

RCMP allege the three are part of a criminal organization going by the name of Bobby and the Kids. They are accused of trafficking drugs throughout Central Alberta, including Sylvan Lake, Blackfalds and Innisfail.

Numerous drug, property and weapons charges were laid by police after the RCMP’s Priority Crimes Task Force descended simultaneously on two Red Deer homes and a Penhold address last Friday morning.

Police seized 55 ounces of cocaine, nine ounces of methamphetamine, marijuana, a stolen pistol, drug paraphernalia, and $30,600 in cash.

All three appeared together by a closed-circuit television link from the Red Deer Remand Centre.

Randy Julius Larson, 25, of Red Deer, and Stephen Michael Temple, 27, of Penhold, remain in custody and return to court on Dec. 10.

Dustin John Greuel, 22, of Red Deer, was released on $5,000 cash bail on a number of conditions, including that he live at a Saskatoon address. Greuel’s case will also return to court on Dec. 10.

Larson is charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, one count of possession of a controlled substance, possession of stolen property under $5,000 and possession of stolen property over $5,000, careless use of a firearm, unauthorized possession of a firearm, possession of a firearm from which the serial number was removed, and two counts of failure to comply with a probation order.

Temple is charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking and possession of stolen property over $5,000.

Greuel is charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking and possession of stolen property under $5,000.
