The following items were seized:

· Cannabis & Cannabis Concentrates
· Hash
· THC Extraction Kit
· Psilocybin
· Equipment and materials used to grow, process and package Psilocybin
· LSD
· Brass Knuckles and Butterfly Knives

36-year-old John Colin Hauschild of Edmonton has been charged with:

Both men are scheduled to appear in St. Albert Provincial Court on Jan. 21, 2020.

St. Albert RCMP say the proactive investigative work is one of the city’s policing strategies aimed at keeping St. Albert safe. A second strategy is for the RCMP to partner with the residents of St. Albert by encouraging “tips” about drug dealers.

They ask those with information on drug trafficking to contact the St. Albert RCMP Drug Tip Line at 780-460-3784 to provide confidential information.
