An investigation into methamphetamine trafficking in Saskatoon by the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit (CFSEU) has led to the arrest of a 42-year-old Warman area man.
On Tuesday, Saskatoon police – along with tactical and air support units – tracked the man down to the 1600 block of 8th Street East, where he was arrested for possession for the purpose of trafficking.
Following the arrest, a search warrant was executed at a Haichert Street residence in Warman, where police found 945 grams – about two pounds – of methamphetamine, seven grams of cocaine, 31 grams of cannabis resin and eight grams of marijuana.
The search also turned up $7,500 in cash, knives and brass knuckles.
As a result, the 42-year-old man is charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking methamphetamine and cocaine, possession of cannabis resin and marijuana, possession of the proceeds of crime over $5,000 and possession of a weapon dangerous to the public peace.
The CFSEU is an investigative body that includes members from Saskatoon, Prince Albert and Regina police, along with RCMP and is funded by the Saskatchewan government.
