    RCMP contact Alberta Children’s Services after young child found in home where arrests were made.

    Three people have been arrested – including two on charges of child endangerment – and nearly $70,000 worth of drugs and cash have been seized following a pair of investigations by ALERT’s organized crime team in Fort McMurray.

    On April 17, 2019, ALERT investigators, with the assistance of Wood Buffalo RCMP, executed a search warrant at a home in the Timberlea subdivision. There, they were able to seize more than $58,000 worth of drugs and cash, including 151 grams of cocaine, 78 grams of MDMA powder, 389 grams of cannabis, and $33,230 in cash proceeds of crime.

    Two people were arrested and charged with numerous offenses, including some under Alberta’s Drug Endangered Children Act after a young child was found at the home. Alberta Children’s Services was notified.

    ALERT is not providing the names of the accused in this investigation in order to protect the identity of the child. The two people arrested, 32 and 23, have each been charged with:

    • possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking (x2);
    • possession of proceeds of crime;
    • possession of cannabis for the purpose of selling without authorization; and
    • child endangerment.

    In a separate investigation, ALERT executed a search warrant at an apartment building in the Eagle Ridge subdivision on March 29, 2019. In this instance, investigators seized approximately $11,000 worth of drugs and cash, including 100 grams of crack cocaine, 88 grams of a cocaine buffing agent, and $955 in cash proceeds of crime.

  • From the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT)

    RCMP Officer Charged

    On Feb. 2, 2018, the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) was directed to investigate the circumstances surrounding a Dec. 28, 2017 confrontation near Barrhead, Alberta, between an off-duty RCMP officer and another motorist.

    After our independent investigation, it was determined that there are reasonable grounds to believe the officer committed offences.

    As required under the Police Act, ASIRT’s investigation was forwarded to the Alberta Crown Prosecution Service for an opinion on whether the case met its standard for prosecution. Having reviewed the investigation and the provided Crown opinion, ASIRT Executive Director, Ms. Susan D. Hughson, QC, made the determination that the involved officer should be charged with four criminal offences.

    On April 25, 2019, Const. Barnaby Seregelyi, a member of the RCMP Wood Buffalo detachment, was charged with the criminal offences of dangerous driving, assault with a weapon, unlawful confinement, and pointing a firearm.

    It is alleged that on Dec. 28, 2017, Const. Seregelyi was off-duty and driving his personal vehicle just west of Barrhead when he encountered another motorist and became embroiled in a driving dispute. During the course of the incident, it is alleged that Const. Seregelyi drove his vehicle in a manner dangerous to the public, confronted the woman operating the other vehicle, pointed a firearm at her, and confined her roadside.

    Const. Seregelyi appeared before a justice of the peace and was released with conditions. He is scheduled to appear in Barrhead provincial court.

    As this matter is now before the courts, ASIRT will not provide any further information.

    ASIRT’s mandate is to effectively, independently and objectively investigate incidents involving Alberta’s police that have resulted in serious injury or death to any person, as well as serious or sensitive allegations of police misconduct.
