A 50-year-old man is facing a number of drug-trafficking and firearm-related charges, after Didsbury RCMP searched a residence last week.
Didsbury RCMP, with assistance of the South Alberta District’s RCMP Crime Treduction Unit, the RCMP Emergency Response Team and Police Dog Services, executed a search warrant on a residence in Didsbury Friday.
Kristopher Ronald Neergaard, 50, was arrested and is facing seven charges for possession for the purpose of trafficking and 20 firearm-related charges.
Drugs seized by police are suspected to be fentanyl, cocaine, heroin, GHB (Hydroxybutanoic acid), hydromorphone (aka Dilaudid), morphin, and psyilocybin (magic mushrooms). Cash, several weapons and firearms were also seized by police.
“This day is a culmination of a complex investigation and will have a significant impact on the Town of Didsbury and surrounding areas. It is rewarding when we are approached on scene by residents of our community, personally thanking us for this work,” said Staff Sgt Chad Fournier, detachment commander.
Neergaard remains in police custody and was scheduled to appear in Didsbury Provincial Court Monday.
The investigation is ongoing.
