EDMONTON – A 39-year-old man faces multiple charges after the Alberta Law Enforcement Response Team (ALERT) confiscated more than $ 700,000 worth of drugs and cash from a home in West Edmonton.

Garret Nybakken was arrested at his home on charges of trafficking drug possession, criminal income, firearms violation and cannabis law charges.

Police say they also found hundreds of rounds of ammunition, which Nybakken is not allowed to have due to a previous conviction.

As a result of a short-term investigation, ALERT Edmonton’s organized crime and gangs team ransacked an apartment in the Glastonbury neighborhood on Monday and carried out the seizure with the help of the Edmonton Police Service, according to a press release.

Overall, the police confiscated:

  • 2,150 grams of cocaine.

  • 94 grams of fentanyl.

  • 261 grams of ketamine.

  • 12,200 grams of cannabis.

  • 50 tablets of LSD.

  • 100 milliliters of GHB.

  • 14,000 grams of polishing agent.

  • $ 74,670 cash.

“The meaning of this is a lot of these substances that we saw on the streets of Edmonton. It boils down to the social impact right away,” S / Sgt said. Lance Parker. “Methamphetamine is making a huge comeback right now. We’re seeing more of it.”
