Meth, fentanyl seized in Red Deer, three men and a woman arrested

About $27,000 worth of drugs are off the streets.

The drugs were seized, along with several weapons, as ALERT concluded a short-term drug trafficking investigation in Red Deer. Four people were arrested.

On September 19, ALERT’s Red Deer organized crime and gang team executed a search warrant at a residence in the Glendale Park Estates subdivision with the help of Red Deer RCMP.

Once inside, the teams seized 340 grams of methamphetamine, 22 grams of fentanyl powder, various typed of ammunition and numerous knives and other weapons.

“Getting these drugs and weapons out of the hands of suspected criminals will have an impact on the overall safety of the Red Deer community,” said Insp. Sean Boser, ALERT regional teams.

Dallas Griffin, 31, is charged with possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, possession of proceeds of crime and breach of recognizance.

Thomas McCrea, 45, is charged with possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, possession of proceeds of crime, possession of stolen property and breach of recognizance.
