On May 30 at approximately 9:20 pm, members of the Fort Saskatchewan Traffic/Crime Reduction Unit were conducting traffic enforcement on Highway 16 and Range Road 191.

A traffic stop was initiated with a vehicle observed to be travelling above the posted speed limit. RCMP members identified the vehicle occupants and determined that the driver had a suspended licence and that two other male passengers had outstanding arrest warrants pertaining to unrelated criminal offences. As a result, all three occupants were arrested.

A search incidental to arrest was completed and the following items were seized:

Approximately ½ a pound of suspected Crack Cocaine, worth an estimated street value of $25,000.00, 31 tablets of Buprenorphine, Drug Packaging, Digital Scale, Bear Spray and $586.00 dollars in Canadian Currency, suspected of being proceeds of crime.
