Two people have been charged following a drug seizure at the Olds Trailer Park.

RCMP issued a search warrant on a residence on Sunday around 11:30 p.m. after a months-long investigation. They found just under 30 grams of cannabis marijuana and a “couple” marijuana plants being grown, said Cpl. C.J. Peden of the Olds RCMP.

A 56-year-old woman was charged with trafficking a controlled substance and production of a controlled substance. A 17-year-old male has also been charged with possession of a controlled substance.

Both have been released from custody on promises to appear with conditions imposed for a court appearance in Didsbury provincial court on Nov. 25.

Peden said the residence had been under investigation since the beginning of summer and police had received a number of complaints from the public.

Anyone suspecting drug activity in their neighbourhood is urged to call their local RCMP detachment or Crime Stoppers.
