Red Deer City RCMP have arrested one woman and seized an undisclosed amount of drugs after a search warrant was executed on Wednesday.

Police have received complaints of people coming and going at all hours from a residence in West Park.

According to Sgt. Tom Kalis, police received a tip on Tuesday and were able to issue a search warrant.

“This has been a problem in the neighbourhood for a couple years now,” Kalis said.

Two adults live alone in the residence.

The name of the woman in custody and more information of the type and amount of drugs seized will be issued at a later date.

Kalis urged all members of the public who notice a high level of suspicious traffic in their neighbourhoods, with visitors spending short periods of time at certain houses, to call RCMP or Crime Stoppers.

“When there is suspected drug dealing going on in a residential neighbourhood, that’s a big concern for us. We’ll treat that as priority.”
