  • As we take a moment to call to mind all the reasons to be thankful at this time of year, it’s also a good time to consider the needs of others.  Agencies dealing with the less fortunate are facing unprecedented numbers.   Alberta’s economic downturn has added hundreds of people to the lists of those searching for help in Red Deer.

    The Red Deer Food Bank is seeing a dramatic increase in demand for their services.  Last month the food bank put out 747 Food Hampers, essentially doubling the 371 Food Hampers doled out in September of last year.

    Executive Director Fred Scaife says the level of need is stunning.

    Scaife says even their Pet Food Bank use has more than doubled.

    The story is similar at Red Deer’s Salvation Army.  The Salvation Army will host a Thanksgiving Meal Monday at noon.  Major Larry Bridger is expecting a big crowd.

    The Salvation Army is at 4837 54 Street.  Again, the Thanksgiving meal there starts at noon Monday.

    Maskwacis RCMP seize firearms, cocaine during search warrants

    Maskwacis RCMP executed three search warrants on the Ermineskin and Samson First Nations between February 12 and February 13, 2019, resulting in the seizure of multiple firearms, drugs, and ammunition.

    Maskwacis Community Response Unit (CRU), Police Dog Services and General Duty members from the Maskwacis Detachment collaborated to execute a search warrant for firearms in rural Samson. In addition to locating and seizing firearms, police seized ammunition, drug paraphernalia and a small amount of crack cocaine. 30 year-old Robbie Redcrow, of Samson First Nation, has been charged with 8 counts relating to the items seized.

    Two search warrants were executed in the Ermineskin Townsite, both resulting in the seizure of cocaine and methamphetamine. Charges under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act are pending in both cases.

    “These searches are an example of targeted, intelligence-led investigations leading to the successful removal of drugs and firearms from the streets,” said Sgt. Gary Maclaren of the Maskwacis Community Response Unit. “Our members gather intelligence and build relationships in the community as part of our larger crime reduction strategy.”
