Two men face drug trafficking charges after RCMP seized fentanyl, cocaine, heroin and other drugs from a north-end hotel room.
Red Deer RCMP said on Feb. 2 at 11 p.m. officers with Red Deer RCMP GIS drug unit conducted a search warrant on the hotel room and took two male suspects into custody without incident.
RCMP also seized methamphetamine and GHB, as well as numerous items consistent with drug trafficking.
A 44-year-old man and a 34-year-old man were both charged with four counts of possession of a schedule I substance for the purpose of trafficking and one count of possession of stolen property under $5,000.
Both are scheduled to appear in Red Deer provincial court on March 29.
Red Deer GIS drug unit focuses on interrupting the flow of illicit and dangerous drugs into the community as part of the detachment’s overall crime reduction strategy to address the root causes of crime and conduct targeted enforcement initiatives.
Police said co-operation between the RCMP and the public is instrumental to the success of crime reduction efforts. The simple act of reporting suspicious or criminal activity provides police with important information used when deploying resources and applying for search warrants.
