Four people have been arrested at the conclusion of three investigations.
The Leduc RCMP Drug Unit wrapped up several investigations into Leduc and Leduc County drug trafficking on July 4th, 2018 with a trio of busts.
As a result of the busts, four people now face various drug related charges and police seized differing quantities of cocaine, methamphetamine, fentanyl and GHB.
In connection to these investigations:
- Manoharan Ponnambalam of Edmonton has been charged with trafficking cocaine
- Tauren Adams of Edmonton has been charged with trafficking fentanyl and cocaine
- Jarrod Schenk and Abdul Bhatti, both of Edmonton, are being jointly charged with trafficking methamphetamine and possession of GHB
"The drug trade, with the associated violence and crime, is an ever present hazard to our communities. By utilizing a unit of highly specialized drug investigators we have been able to make a serious impact on drug trafficking in Leduc and Leduc County," says RCMP Corporal Lyle Rattray.
"This type of pro-active police work is very effective in our crime reduction strategy."
