Calgary police bust drug-trafficking operation in southwest

Calgary police have charged a man they believed responsible for a drug-trafficking operation in the southwest of the city.

In September, police received information from concerned citizens about possible drug-trafficking activity in a residential area.

A two-month long investigation allowed investigators to gather enough evidence supporting the claims of illegal activity.

On Monday, police executed a search warrant in the 2100 block of Southland Drive S.W. seizing $1,360 in cash and $17,980 in various drugs, including:

  • 32.2 grams of cocaine
  • 103.7 grams of crack cocaine
  • 300 pills of Fentanyl
  • 20 grams of Fentanyl
  • 38 grams of methamphetamine
  • 21 pills of Trazadone
  • 2.4 grams of a suspected buffing agent

One man was taken into custody and charged. Brodie Caleb Stewart, 21, was charged with four counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking and one count of possession of property obtained by crime.
