Police seize $10 million in cocaine and meth

BY , Feb 5, 2020 1:26 AM - REPORT AN ERROR

A Calgary man is facing charges after nearly 100 kilograms of cocaine and meth was seized from a vehicle in southern Alberta last week.

Calgary police say the bust resulted from an investigation launched in November 2019 into a man thought to be involved in drug trafficking across Canada.

Officers stopped the suspect Thursday while he was driving near Dorothy, Alta. about an hour and a half east of Calgary.

The suspect was taken into custody and police say a search of the vehicle revealed nearly 47 kilograms of cocaine bricks and 48 kilograms of crystal methamphetamine.

Staff Sgt. Kyle Grant says the seizure was likely one of the biggest for the force in the past 20 years.

Thirty three year old Jacob Neumann is charged with two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking and is scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
