Cash, guns and drugs seized following Didsbury bust

CALGARY — Charges have been laid against a man following a significant seizure of drugs, cash and illegal weapons and firearms in the town of Didsbury this week.

Didsbury RCMP say a search warrant was executed on a home in the community on Jan. 22 at the culmination of a complex investigation into suspected drug trafficking.

During the search, police found a significant quantity of cash, weapons and drugs, including fentanyl, cocaine, heroin, GHB, hydromorphone (dilaudid), morphine and psyilocybin (magic mushrooms).

“This day is a culmination of a complex investigation and will have a significant impact on the town of Didsbury and surrounding areas,” said Staff Sgt. Chad Fournier with the Didbury RCMP in a statement. “It is rewarding when we are approached on scene by residents of our community, personally thanking us for this work.”
