RCMP Make Drug Bust in Whitecourt
On August 26th, 2016 at approximately 5:00 p.m., Whitecourt RCMP with the assistance of RCMP Police Dog Services executed a warrant to search a dwelling house in River Valley Estates for methamphetamine and cocaine.
An adult female and an adult male were arrested in relation to this search. A substantial quantity of drugs, some Canadian currency, and other property related to these offences, have been seized.
Police Dog Services were instrumental in effecting the arrest of the adult male, who was on parole at the time of his arrest.
Investigation into these allegations is on-going. A further release will be made for the identities of any charged persons.
RCMP Whitecourt are thankful for several community partners who helped further this investigation.
