Edmonton, Alberta – The Edmonton Police Service is seeking the public’s assistance in locating a person of interest in connection to a southeast Edmonton clandestine drug processing and packaging lab.
Southwest patrol officers responded to a call for assistance to a residence near 85 Avenue and 107 Street last Thursday, June 20, 2019.
Upon arrival, officers discovered what appeared to be an illegal drug processing facility in the detached garage. A large quantity (approximately 1 kg) of butyrylfentanyl and morphine were found inside the garage, along with a grape drink liquid and various drug-processing equipment.
Investigators believe a male suspect had rented the residential detached garage, which he then transformed into a clan lab.
“It’s imperative to do your homework as a landlord. Check out your renter’s references. If you don’t, you may be inadvertently inviting criminals to set up shop on your property,” says Sgt. Guy Pilon, of the EPS Clan Lab Response Team.
Investigators are releasing a photo of a person of interest in connection to this clan lab operation. Anyone who may be able to identify and/or know the whereabouts of this individual is asked to contact the EPS at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.tipsubmit.com/start.htm.
