Fort McMurray drug scam
August 2017 the Edmonton journal reported that "A Fort McMurray man will spend more than five years in prison after an investigation into a drug trafficking network ended with police seizing more than $1 million worth of drugs in 2015. During a Wednesday morning court appearance, Justice Kevin Feehan sentenced Paul Ohelo to serve three years and six months for trafficking cocaine and five years and six months for trafficking fentanyl. The sentence is to be served concurrently, minus a day in custody in lieu of time served."
"According to an agreed statement of facts, which Ohelo accepted, an undercover police officer and civilian agent bought thousands of dollars worth of fentanyl and cocaine from the trafficking ring during five separate occasions in 2015. Ohelo delivered the drugs to the undercover individuals and also collected their payments during the transactions. The same court documents indicate two other individuals — Patrick Felix and Spencer Brown — negotiated quantity, delivery terms and pricing with the undercover duo."
The question is, how did Patrick Felix and Spencer Brown, the ring leaders of the operation get off Scott free? Something smells pretty fishy about this one. “Felix and Mulley are accused of being the central figures in cocaine and fentanyl distribution networks that was based in Fort McMurray, but also had connections to Edmonton, Calgary, and British Columbia.”
