DIDSBURY - A variety of suspected illicit and prescription drugs local police contend were destined to be trafficked were seized from a Didsbury residence yesterday.

A 50-year-old man faces 27 charges resulting from what Didsbury RCMP Staff Sgt. Chad Fournier called a complex investigation.

On Friday, Jan. 22, Didsbury RCMP executed a search warrant on a residence in the town with assistance from Southern Alberta District’s RCMP Crime Reduction Unit, RCMP Emergency Response Team and RCMP Police Dog Services, RCMP confirmed in a press release issued today (Jan. 23).

Drugs seized during the search are suspected to be fentanyl, cocaine, heroin, GHB (hydroxybutanoic acid), hydromorphone (also known as Dilaudid), morphine, and psyilocybin (also known as magic mushrooms), the release stated.

“This day is a culmination of a complex investigation and will have a significant impact on the Town of Didsbury and surrounding areas. It is rewarding when we are approached on scene by residents of our community, personally thanking us for this work,” said Fournier, Didsbury RCMP’s detachment commander.

Canadian currency, several weapons and firearms were also seized by police, the release states.

Kristopher Ronald Neergaard was arrested in connection with the investigation and faces numerous charges including seven counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking and 20 firearm-related charges.

Neergaard was remanded in police custody and is scheduled to appear in Didsbury provincial court on Jan. 25.
