A suspected drug house in Red Deer’s Inglewood neighbourhood has been ordered closed for 90 days following a Community Safety Order by the Safer Communities and Neighbourhoods Unit (SCAN).

The house at 51 Ibbotson Close will remain closed until Nov. 16, 2013, unless the title of the property is transferred to a third party purchaser before that time.

SCAN is a team funded by the provincial government to tackle serious and organized crime.

The SCAN unit began investigating activity at the house after members of the public complained about suspected drug-related activity. During the investigation, SCAN attempted to resolve the matter informally with the property owner, but the alleged activity continued. SCAN obtained a Community Safety Order from Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench on Nov. 16.

During the 90-day closure period which takes effect at noon today, the owner must vacate the house and the property will be secured, including the installation of a fence around the perimeter. Any and all tenancy agreements or leases of any tenant of the property are terminated as of the closure date.

Albertans who suspect a property in their neighbourhood is being used for illegal activity should contact SCAN toll-free at 1-866-960-SCAN (7226) or online at www.scan.alberta.ca. All complaints are confidential. Residents are reminded never to investigate suspected problem properties on their own.
