Seven charged in northwest drug trafficking

Seven people are now facing 27 Criminal Code charges for offences relating to drug trafficking in the city’s northwest.

From Tuesday, June 19, to Thursday, June 21, 2018, members of District 3 Mountain Bike Unit, District 3 Community Resource Officers, and members of the Strategic Enforcement Unit, executed an operation targeting street-level drug trafficking in District 3. The areas of Sunnyside, Memorial Drive bike path and North Hill Mall were identified through calls for service and community concerns. Over the three-day operation a total of seven individuals were arrested and charged for offences relating to trafficking controlled substances and weapons offences.

The following people were charged:

  • Kevin Allen BUSH, 36
  • Anthony Michael DELAGE, 21
  • Christopher STERLING, 40
  • Leonard FELLOWS, 24
  • James William DIDYK, 40
  • Austin Bradly LUCK, 33
  • Morgan ROUSE, 38

The strategic enforcement of drug and weapons trafficking is a priority for the Calgary Police Service. Illegal drug activity is a danger to the community and a root cause of social disorder, violent crime and property crime. Vehicle thefts, break and enters and robberies are often committed by those trying to fuel addiction. The CPS aims to address root causes of crime through crime reduction strategies and community partnerships to ensure Calgary remains a safe place to live.
