A drug investigation at the Bowden Institution has resulted in charges after a year and a half long investigation. In November of 2019 Bowden Institution staff responded to suspicious activity on Correctional Service Canada’s property. A search was conducted that resulted in locating contraband that had been concealed on the property. The contraband packages contained fentanyl, methamphetamine, cannabis concentrates and tobacco. Innisfail RCMP General Investigation Section worked on the investigation in partnership with the Bowden Institution’s Security Intelligence Office and Slave Lake RCMP General Investigation Section.

Raymond Foss (32), Braden Foster (31) and Joshua Laboucan (23) all of Slave Lake, Alta., have been charged with:

  • Trafficking a controlled substance, contrary to the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (x2),
  • Distribute Cannabis, contrary to the Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Act, and
  • Trespass by night.

Foss and Foster were arrested and after a judicial release hearing were remanded into custody.  After a subsequent bail hearing, Foss was released.  Foss and Foster’s next Court appearances are both scheduled for August 19, 2021 in Red Deer Provincial Court. Laboucan remains at large with outstanding warrants for his arrest.
