A 41-year-old man has been arrested and charged following a search of a St. Albert apartment that netted more than $40,000 in controlled drugs and some weapons.
The St. Albert RCMP crime reduction unit (CRU) had been monitoring a federal parolee residing in St. Albert since October 2020. The CRU, with the assistance of the St. Albert drug unit and St. Albert traffic service, executed a controlled drug and substance search warrant at a St. Albert apartment.
During the June 17 search police located and seized approximately 381 grams of methamphetamine and 284 grams of cocaine, approximately 65 grams of fentanyl, around 1.5 litres of GHB and approximately 1.72 kilograms of a buffing agent.
The street value of the drugs seized was more than $40,000. Police also found a stolen sawed-off shotgun and a loaded Kel Tec 9 mm folding carbine.
As a result of the investigation and search, Jesse Louis was arrested and charged with possession of controlled substance for purpose of trafficking, and numerous weapons offences.
Jesse Louie’s parole was suspended and he was remanded into custody.
His next court appearance is scheduled for June 28 in St. Albert.
