7 people charged in joint drug investigation in Wainwright
Editor’s note: RCMP originally stated the five suspects were facing the charge of possession of stolen property. They later stated the charge should have been possession of proceeds of crime not exceeding $5,000. This story has been updated to reflect the corrected information.
On Nov. 6 and 7, police searched two homes in Wainwright and say they found cocaine, ecstasy, cannabis and cash.
Five suspects have been arrested and charged so far and there are warrants out for two other suspects.
Brittney Squire, 21, Zachery Demontigny, 25, Tammy Davis, 50, and Corinne Chaisson, 19, are facing charges that include drug trafficking and possession of proceeds of crime not exceeding $5,000.
Police said the investigation began in October “specifically to address community concerns related to street-level drug trafficking.”
