Red Deer RCMP seize drugs, guns and cash in major multi-agency bust

Red Deer RCMP, along with other police agencies, arrested four people and laid 17 charges following a multi-agency investigation, which led to a series of drug seizures in Red Deer, Calgary, Rocky Mountain House and Carstairs. 

Red Deer RCMP began their investigation into drug trafficking activity in Red Deer in March, 2019, and that investigation quickly led to ties with drug trafficking activity in surrounding communities. The Red Deer RCMP General Investigation Section unit collaborated with Calgary Police Service, Rocky Mountain RCMP and Didsbury RCMP to execute a series of coordinated search warrants on June 7, 2019. 

As a result of those search warrants, the following were seized by police:

In Red Deer:

·         306 g cocaine

·         10 fentanyl pills

·         $17,270 Canadian currency 

In Calgary: 

·         825 fentanyl pills

·         75 Oxy pills (counterfeit)

·         1.465 kg cannabis

·         609 g cocaine

·         19 g fentanyl powder

·         521 g of methamphetamine

·         254 grams of MDMA

·         1.78 kg of suspected phenacetin (Super Buff)

·         Rifle

·         Shotgun

·         $48,800 Canadian currency

In Rocky Mountain House:

·         $4,070 Canadian currency 

In Carstairs: 

·         $4,100 Canadian currency

·         104 g cannabis

·         26 g fentanyl

·         32 g methamphetamine

·         16 g crack

·         16 g heroin

·         Rifle

·         Shotgun

“This is a significant drugs seizure for Red Deer and Central Alberta,” said Superintendent Gerald Grobmeier, Officer in Charge of the Red Deer RCMP. “This seizure was the direct result of a coordinated effort across partner agencies, which demonstrates the effectiveness of shared intelligence between police agencies. We’re all working toward the same goals of crime reduction, and we see many of the same repeat offenders crossing jurisdictions, so it’s imperative that we work smarter than the criminals.”

As a result of the coordinated efforts of this investigation, four individuals were arrested and 17 charges were laid:

Robert Leslie Amency (45) of Calgary has been charged with:

·         Possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking (x5)

·         Possession of cannabis for the purpose of selling

·         Possession of stolen property over $5000

·         Unauthorized possession of a prohibited weapon (2)

Robert Amency remains in custody after a judicial hearing and will appear in Red Deer Provincial Court on July 4, 2019. 

Michelle Florence Geeregat (32) of Sylvan Lake has been charged with:

·         Possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking 

·         Possession of stolen property under $5,000

Michelle Geeregat was released from custody after a judicial hearing and will appear in Red Deer Provincial Court on June 27, 2019.

·         Possession of a controlled substance

·         Possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking

June 20, 2019

Edmonton – On June 18 at approximately 7 p.m., the Edmonton International Airport Detachment responded to a call for service in relation to a male in distress in the airport parkade.

During the course of the investigation, it was revealed that the 41-year-old male from Edmonton was wanted on an outstanding arrest warrant. He was taken into RCMP custody and transported to the airport detachment. While in custody, the male became extremely agitated and the responding members were required to restrain him and take him through the airport to a police vehicle for transport to an Edmonton hospital.

During transport, an incident arose that required RCMP to stop roadside to subdue the male, resulting in a Conducted Energy Weapon being deployed. Edmonton Police Service responded to assist, along with EMS. Once the situation was under control, members were able to continue transport the hospital.

The investigation into this incident continues by both the RCMP and Alberta Serious Incident Response Team. No further information will be made available by RCMP.
