$2-Million Highway Drug Bust - "Massive" Is An Understatement

 
 

COCHRANE: It's a case of either a "dumb criminal', "an arrogant criminal" or both. However, once again, if you're in the process of committing a crime, it's likely the details that will trip you up.

 

Without the photos, it would be hard to believe the extent of what an officer happened upon.

 

About 5:00 on Thursday July 18th, an RCMP Traffic officer stopped a vehicle traveling east on Highway 1 near Canmore for a traffic safety infraction. When the officer approached the vehicle, a strong odour of raw cannabis was noted coming from within.

 

A search of the vehicle revealed approximately 300 pounds of Cannabis marijuana, three kilograms of MDMA (Ecstasy) and an extendable baton. Street level sale of the contraband would yield over $2 Million.

 

The driver and lone occupant of the vehicle, a 34 year old man from Edmonton, has been charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking and one count of possession of a weapon dangerous to the public. He was released on $3000.00 cash bail to appear in Canmore Provincial Court on July 24th.
