Two adults have been charged following a search for drugs at a Wainwright house.

On Wednesday, Sept. 20, Eastern Alberta District Crime Reduction Unit (EAD CRU) and RCMP Police Dog Services assisted Wainwright RCMP and executed a search warrant on a residence. 

Two adults and three youths were located within the residence. The two adults were taken into custody and the three youth were escorted from the property, but were released shortly after as they were not involved in the investigation, police said. 

Drug and firearms related charges are pending against the two adult residents of the home. They were released on an Undertaking with their first appearance in Alberta Court of Justice in Wainwright on Nov. 2, 2023. 

As their charges have not been formally sworn, their identity can not be released, RCMP said. 

“A part of the mandate of EAD CRU is to support the District’s detachments in combatting crime in the community. This is another example of the RCMP’s commitment to keeping our communities safe,” says Sgt. Mike Dunsmore, EAD CRU.
