CTV is reporting that "Calgary police seized fentanyl, methamphetamine, guns and vehicles, and charged two individuals as part of a five-month organized crime investigation. Calgary police said the Organized Crime Operations Unit launched the investigation in April 2023 after receiving information about two men believed to be involved with drug trafficking and in possession of firearms. Two men were taken into custody on Aug. 24 without incident. Officers also executed search warrants in four southwest Calgary residences."
