Calgary drug bust seizes 40 kilos of cocaine
The Edmonton sun is reporting that "Twelve people were arrested following a year-long investigation, resulting in the seizure of 40 kilograms of cocaine, 11,597 fentanyl pills, 1.2 kilograms of methamphetamine, 545 grams of heroin, 182 grams of MDMA, 450 grams of marihuana and 60 kilograms of Phenacetin." It was an ALERT bust of course. If ALERT was in BC Christy Clark and the BC Liberals would disband them for doing their job. The Calgary Sun has a video clip of the haul.
The bust was in Calgary. Previously we know that the main drug gangs in Calgary were the FOB and the FK. The FOB were supplied by the Hells Angels through the Independent Soldiers while the FK were supplied by the UN. It will be interesting to find out who were supplying these guys. Although most of the arrests were in Calgary Also arrested were Dennis Galen Ross, 27, and Todd Randall Chapman, 31, from Smithers, B.C. and James Joseph Bailey, 43, from Surrey, B.C. Fentanyl is what the Hells Angels were caught trafficking in Saskatchewan that has caused many fatalities. Last year 45 kilos of cocaine bound for Calgary was seized in Nevada.
