File # 2021-672

Months of ongoing investigations, evidence collection, surveillance, and information gathering paid off in the early hours of Friday, July 17, 2021 when the Valemount RCMP executed a search warrant at a known drug house in the 1000-block of 14th Avenue in Valemount. A local man was arrested without incident inside the home and is facing numerous charges including, but not limited to, trafficking in a controlled substance, and possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.

A thorough search of the residence was conducted, resulting in substantial amounts of suspected methamphetamine, cocaine, "crack" cocaine, GHB, and heroin being located, as well as drug paraphernalia, including scales, plastic baggies, and needles. Police also seized  in excess of $6800 in cash.  

Cash, suspected drugs, & paraphernalia

Drugs are not just in the big cities, said Constable Robert Riemer, We, as a community can work to restrict drug sales and help prevent the social and family problems that go with it. I hope that these successes will inspire more people to come forward with information. This is only the beginning as police will continue to focus on drug related movements and sales to help ensure a safe and positive community for all.
