A 31-year-old Edmonton man is facing a list of drug and firearm-related charges after police seized drugs, a weapon and cash from a home late last month.

The Alberta Law Enforcement Response Teams (ALERT) searched an Edmonton home on June 29.

Police found $240,000 worth of drugs, a loaded Glock 22 .40-calibre handgun with its serial number removed, $36,000 in cash and a 2004 Mercedes-Benz.

“Organized crime is still a major threat to the safety of people across Alberta,” Staff Sgt. Pamela Robinson said.

“Getting guns and drugs out of the hands of suspected dealers will help ensure community safety.”

Investigators also seized nearly four kilograms of cannabis resin – a highly potent marijuana derivative – and 720 millilitres of cannabis oil. The resin was split up into one-gram packages, with an estimated a street value of $60 for each package, ALERT said in a media release Monday afternoon.
