A man and a woman are facing charges after Edmonton police dismantled a drug operation and seized more than $30,000 in marijuana, other drugs and weapons. When Edmonton Police Service executed a search warrant on a home in the area of 120A Street and 19th Avenue on March 24, they found drugs and paraphernalia, and also evidence that one of the rooms in the home was being used to make drugs.

Police seized 1,365 grams of marijuana, 186 grams of shatter and candies coated in shatter, a marijuana derivative, psilocybin and hash.

Police also found two replica firearms, several edged weapons, and drug trafficking paraphernalia and equipment.

Risk of explosion

In a news release, acting Sgt. Curtis Maron said there is a high risk of explosion associated with the production of shatter.

“We were able to seize a significant quantity of the drug and shut down a dangerous operation,” he said.

The man and the woman, both 26, each face 12 charges, including possession for the purpose of trafficking, production of a controlled substance, possession of stolen property under $5,000 and possession of an offensive weapon dangerous to the public.
