Police seized Fentanyl, Meth, Cocaine

The driver of a black vehicle stopped at Parkland Drive near Thomas Drive was subjected to an alcohol screening. In the car, there was just one other individual.

The screening resulted in a warning reading, which leads in an instant suspension of the driver’s license and a seven-day car seizure.

How Authorities Discovered a Package

The car was inspected before it was impounded, and officers discovered a backpack carrying what was thought to be a considerable number of illicit substances, according to an RCMP announcement issued Wednesday.

What Drugs Were Found 

The contents were validated by lab findings, which included: $2,540 cash, about 548 grams of fentanyl mixed with bromazolam with an estimated street value of $109,600.

Also there were about 79 grams of cocaine with a market price of $7,900 and nearly 384 grams methamphetamine with a street value of $38,400. 

Both the passenger and the driver were detained. Sebastian Gillett-Smith, 21, and Brandon Prechner, 21, have both been charged with three counts of possession with the intent to traffic a controlled drug.
