The Eastern Alberta District Rural Crime Reduction Unit says more meth has been taken off the streets after an arrest on Tuesday. Mounties with the crime unit say they were on patrol north of St. Paul on Range Road 95 January 22nd when they stopped a car. After a quick search, mounties say they found what is believed to be “a sizeable quantity” of methamphetamine.
A 28-year-old Goodfish Lake woman and 36-year-old Myrnman man were both arrested and now face charges including possession of a controlled substance. Both remain with the police and saw St. Paul court today.
“While drug trafficking isn’t the primary focus of our unit, it is often a contributing factor to much of the rural crime in Eastern Alberta,” says Constable Guillaume Wilson, EADRCRU. “Arresting those responsible for trafficking drugs within the community will help us in disrupting criminal activity in the area.”
