Manitoba RCMP seize significant amount of meth and cocaine

Winnipeg, Manitoba – The Federal Serious and Organized Crime (FSOC) unit of the Manitoba RCMP undertook a four-month long investigation which resulted in the seizure of 5 kilograms of methamphetamine and 1 kilogram of cocaine from a residence in the Tyndall Park area of Winnipeg. The large seizure was the result of a search warrant executed in February 2020 as part of an ongoing investigation into interprovincial methamphetamine and cocaine trafficking, which is aimed at stopping illicit drugs from being distributed in Manitoba communities. This investigation was carried out with the assistance of numerous specialized RCMP Units and the RCMP in British Columbia.

A 34-year-old female, Stacey Rae BALLANTYNE, has been charged with several offences under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, including Trafficking in a Controlled Substance, Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking a Controlled Substance and Conspiracy to Traffic in a Controlled Substance.
