The RCMP Crime Reduction Unit executed a search warrant at an Airdrie residence on September 9, and in turn, seized a significant amount of narcotics and arrested three people.
Cpl. Gina Slaney with the Airdrie RCMP says all three have since been released and will be appearing in court at a later date.
Twenty-six-year-old Cody Van Dyk of Airdrie has been charged with possession of a controlled substance (heroin). He was released on documents and will be appearing in Alberta Provincial Court on November 5.
Twenty-three-year-old Alex Syer of Airdrie, has been charged with possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking (x6), trafficking in a controlled substance (Carfentanyl) as well as possession of property obtained by crime (x2).
Twenty-two-year old Kenedee Taylor of Airdrie has been charged with possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking (x6), possession of property obtained by crime (x1).
Both Syer and Taylor have been released from custody on conditions and will be appearing in Alberta Provincial Court on October 1.
The Airdrie RCMP Crime Reduction Unit seized the following narcotics from the residence:
·69.7 g Carfentanil
·15.7 g Methamphetamine
·35.8 g Cocaine
·1.5L Gamma-HydroxyButyrate (GHB)
·2.7 g Psilocybin (Mushrooms)
·Approximately 20 pills of Xanax
·$1630 Canadian cash proceeds
Cpl. Slaney says that this drug seizure was especially significant due to the fact that there was Carfentanil in the residence.
She says "Carfentanil is one of the most toxic opioids currently known, with studies showing it to be 10, 000 times more potent than morphine, 4,000 times more potent that heroin, and 100 times more potent than Fentanyl. Carfentanil exposure and handling can lead to fatalities since the substance can be absorbed through accidental inhalation of airborne powder."
