A man and a woman have been charged following a month-long drug investigation that led to police searching a property in central Edmonton.
In July, members of the Edmonton Police Service’s special project team began a drug trafficking investigation after learning of a suspicious vehicle allegedly involved in drug transactions in the city’s Brewery District.
On Friday, police searched a home as well as a Honda Civic in the area of 117 Street and 105 Avenue where more than $117,000 worth of illegal drugs and cash were seized, including:
- nearly $40,000 cash
- 571.5 grams of methamphetamine valued at nearly $60,000
- 168.5 grams of cocaine valued at nearly $18,000
Anthony Deng-Truong, 24, and Alyssa Deng, 20, both of Edmonton, are each charged with two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking and possession of proceeds of crime.
