Calgary police have charged two men and seized nearly $50,000 worth of drugs after a cocaine and fentanyl trafficking investigation.
Police say they received a tip from a member of the public about drug dealers handing out ‘business cards’ in September 2016. The cards, which had contact information and names of three people, were titled ‘TWJ’s Catering Service’. Police believe the business cards were for a catering company that does not exist.
Police say two suspects were identified and were seen dealing drugs at a post-secondary school in the city. Investigators have submitted an application for this to be considered an aggravating factor and are seeking a mandatory minimum sentence.
Investigators say search warrants were executed on two vehicles and two residences on Nov. 14 in the 200 block of Fresno Place N.E. and in the 0-100 block of West Springs Road S.W. As a result of these searches, officers seized the following:
- 7 grams of crack cocaine
- 742 fentanyl pills
- 99 fentanyl/ heroin pills
- 3 grams of methamphetamine
- 7 grams of powder cocaine
- $22,010 in cash
Jeffery Truong, 21, faces 14 drug and criminal code-related charges. Christian Lay, 24, is charged with three drug and criminal code-related charges. Their next court appearance is set for Jan. 4.
