More drugs and firearms were seized from a Red Deer home after a recent bust.   

On June 26, Alberta Law Enforcement Response Teams (ALERT) searched a home and vehicle with the help of Red Deer RCMP.   

A planned vehicle stop was conducted, and a suspect arrested, followed by the search of a home in the Pines neighbourhood.  

The seizure came after a May drug and firearms bust in the Eastview neighbourhood, where more than $220,000 worth of drugs and five firearms were seized.   

“Our work doesn’t stop with an arrest. ALERT remains diligent in exploring other targets and places of interest to ensure we completely dismantle drug trafficking networks,” said Insp. Brad Lundeen, ALERT Regional.  

Following the Eastview seizure, ALERT continued to target the suspects and identified a second suspected drug stash location at a home in the Pines neighbourhood.   

A search of the Pines home and vehicle yielded approximately $70,000 worth of drugs, including:  

  • 5 firearms  

  • 655 grams of methamphetamine  

  • 50 grams of cocaine  

  • 19 grams of fentanyl  

  • $5,540 cash  

One of the firearms, a rifle, had its serial number defaced. None of the firearms were lawfully possessed and will be sent to ALERT’s Provincial Firearms Solutions Lab for ballistics testing and analysis.  

Charges have yet to be laid from either investigation, but several suspects have been identified.   

The investigation remains ongoing as investigators prepare reports and disclosure for Crown Counsel.
