Charges laid in drug trafficking operation targeting Calgary Transit sites

We have charged 22 individuals with 115 criminal charges following an operation that targeted drug traffickers who were operating at CTrain stations throughout Calgary.

Earlier this year, police identified an increase in calls for service at Calgary Transit CTrain stations that related to drug use, overdoses and drug-related violence. To address this concerning trend, the Drug Undercover Street Team, began an operation in March 2022 aimed at disrupting drug trafficking believed to be occurring at these locations.

Between Tuesday, March 22, 2022, and Friday, April 1, 2022, officers across the city worked together to collect evidence and identify offenders. Throughout the investigation, 22 individuals were arrested, and a total of 115 criminal charges were laid including trafficking of a controlled substance, possession of property obtained by crime, breach of a court order, and possession of a prohibited weapon. Eight of the offenders were also wanted on a total of 77 unrelated warrants for previous offences and court breaches.

As a result, the following individuals have been charged with drug trafficking in addition to multiple other offences:
