Organized crime and gang investigators have seized thousands more fentanyl pills in two separate investigations in the Calgary area.
A warrant was executed in a Killarney home last week following the arrest of two Lethbridge men near Aldersyde earlier this month.
The Alberta Law Enforcement Emergency Response Team seized nearly 28-hundred fentanyl pills from a home and a vehicle.
Police allege the home was being used a cocaine conversion lab. Cash and cocaine were also seized.
Earlier in the week, police seized almost 950 fentanyl pills from a Hillhurst home.
Sofonyas Fkade, 24, Bereketab Gedecho, 30, and Cody Bryant, 22 are facing numerous charges.
