The crackdown on the illegal drug trade continues in the High Prairie area.
High Prairie RCMP Const. Kayla Dubowski reports that on Sept. 14, the High Prairie Integrated Drug Unit and members of the RCMP conducted a search warrant on a residence in High Prairie.
“Four individuals from High Prairie were arrested for possession for the purpose of trafficking methamphetamine and possession of cannabis,” she writes in a news release.
The next day, Sept. 15, the same law enforcement divisions conducted a traffic stop on Kapawe’no First Nation which led to the arrest of two individuals for possession of cannabis.
“Further investigation and search of the vehicle led to the seizure of approximately 72 grams of cocaine, various drug paraphernalia, and $640 in Canadian currency,” says Dubowski.
Both occupants were subsequently arrested for possession for the purpose of trafficking cocaine.
Police were kept busy. On Sept. 21, members conducted a traffic stop where it was determined that cannabis was present inside the vehicle.
“Both occupants of the vehicle were arrested for possession of cannabis. Further investigation and search of the vehicle led to the seizure of approximately 66 grams of cannabis for the purpose of trafficking along with nine grams of magic mushrooms,” says Dubowski.
Names were not released in any of the cases.
Police ask that any drug related activity or information be forwarded to the local detachment at  523-3370 or contact Crime Stoppers anonymously at [1-800] 222-TIPS .
