Drugs, Guns Seized in Innisfail

A short-term investigation by ALERT’s Red Deer organized crime team has resulted in the seizure of a wide variety of drugs from a home in Innisfail. Two women were arrested.

The two-week investigation wrapped up on June 25, 2020, as ALERT investigators executed a search warrant at a house in the 4000 block of 48 Avenue in Innisfail. Assistance was provided by Innisfail RCMP.

Once inside, investigators seized more than $23,000 worth of drugs and cash, including:

  • 47 grams of fentanyl powder;
  • 146 grams of methamphetamine;
  • 18 grams of cocaine;
  • 445 millilitres of gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB);
  • 8 blotters of LSD;
  • 198 illicit prescription pills;
  • 13.9 grams of cannabis resin; and
  • $1,750 cash proceeds of crime.

Two .22-calibre rifles — one of which had the barrel sawed off — and hundreds of rounds of ammunition were also seized.

“The wide variety of drugs seized during this investigation is remarkable, especially for a town such as Innisfail,” said Insp. Sean Boser, ALERT Regional Teams. “Being able to act quickly to get drugs and firearms out of these suspects’ hands is a big win for community safety.”

“Having a partner like ALERT, who we can collaborate with on investigations like this one, is invaluable,” said Staff Sgt. Chris Matechuk, Innisfail RCMP detachment commander. “The drug trade and associated violence are problems that are not confined to urban centres. We will use every resource at our disposal to keep our community safe.”

Pamela Jacobson, 43, and Keanna Chuhaniuk, 24, are each charged with:

  • possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking (x5);
  • possession of proceeds of crime;
  • careless use of a firearm (x2);
  • unauthorized possession of a firearm;
  • possession of a prohibited firearm; and
  • possession of a weapon obtained by crime.

Members of the public who suspect drug or gang activity in their community can call local police, or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Crime Stoppers is always anonymous.

ALERT was established and is funded by the Alberta Government and is a compilation of the province’s most sophisticated law enforcement resources committed to tackling serious and organized crime.

RCMP have laid charges, including first degree murder, against a 54-year-old male after yesterday’s homicide of a Red Deer physician at the Village Mall Walk-In Clinic.

Deng Mabiour of Red Deer faces the following charges:

  • First degree murder
  • Assault of a police officer
  • Assault with weapon

Mabiour assaulted 45-year-old Walter Reynolds in the Village Mall Walk-In Clinic shortly after 11 a.m. on August 10. Reynolds was transported to hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

“This was not a random attack, and the first degree murder charge speaks to the premeditated nature of this incident,” said Supt. Gerald Grobmeier, Officer in Charge of the Red Deer RCMP.
“There were many witnesses and people who acted bravely during this assault, and we encourage anyone to reach out for support as these incidents can be traumatic and difficult to process.”

Red Deer Victim Services is available to anyone looking for support and can be reached by calling 403-306-2345.

Red Deer RCMP wishes to thank the quick responses from witnesses at the clinic, The City of Red Deer Emergency Services, Red Deer Transit and RCMP Major Crimes.

Mabiour is scheduled to appear in Red Deer Provincial Court on August 12.

Charges likely in fatal attack at central Alberta medical clinic: RCMP

Published on

RED DEER, Alta. — Mounties say they anticipate charges will be laid after a man was killed in a violent attack at a medical clinic in central Alberta yesterday.

A witness told media outlets that it was her family doctor who was slain at the walk-in clinic in Red Deer, and that the suspect had a hammer and a machete.

Supt. Gerald Grobmeier held a news conference last night but wouldn’t confirm details.

He says a suspect is in custody and charges are likely.

Grobmeier says other staff and patients were in the Village Mall Walk-In Clinic at the time of the attack and will likely suffer trauma because of what they saw.

He describes it as an isolated but extremely brazen crime.

“I am sickened to learn that a member of our community died in such a violent tragedy,” Grobmeier said.

“My heart goes out to the family … no one expects that.”

He said one officer was struck with a blunt weapon during the arrest, and was treated for minor injuries.

Premier Jason Kenney and Health Minister Tyler Shandro both tweeted that they were saddened to hear about the fatal attack on the doctor.

Dr. Christine Molnar, president of the Alberta Medical Association, said in a statement that the organization will be reaching out to local medical staff for support.
