Update #2: Dog shot during high-risk drug warrants

Three men have now been charged in connection with a dial-a-dope operation which culminated in high-risk warrants on two homes yesterday morning.

During the execution of one of the warrants, in the 2300 block of 19 Street S.W., a tactical team member was injured after being attacked by a pitbull-type dog. The dog was shot and killed by another officer. The injured officer was treated in hospital and required more than a dozen stitches to close the bite wound.

A second warrant in the 200 block of Coral Springs Circle N.E., was executed a short time later.

After searches of the homes, the following was seized:

  • Approximately 1.8 kilograms of marijuana, worth an estimated $18,000
  • More than $1,000 in cocaine
  • $14,565 in cash
  • As well as various amounts of steroids

Three men, two of whom were arrested from the southwest location and one who turned himself into police later in the day, have now been charged in connection with the operation.

Ashley STANWAY, 25, of Calgary, is charged with possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking, possession of property obtained by crime, possessing more than one operator’s licence and resisting arrest.

David ESSIAMBRE, 23, of Calgary, is charged with possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking.

Jeffery Randy YETMAN, 31, of Calgary, who turned himself into police, is charged with possession of cocaine, and two counts of possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking.
