25-year-old woman, from Saskatoon’s City Park area, charged in drug trafficking investigation

Saskatoon, Saskatchewan – Members of the Saskatoon Police Service’s Crime Reduction Team have concluded a one week investigation into fentanyl trafficking activities, of a 25-year-old woman, from Saskatoon’s City Park area.

On December 8th, 2021, just after 1:00 p.m., a 25-year-old woman was taken into custody by members of the Tactical Support Unit, without incident, near a business in the 1200 block of 7th Avenue North. She had been observed engaging in activity consistent with drug trafficking. The woman was found in possession of .26 grams of fentanyl and $100.00 cash. Loose fentanyl powder was also located in the vehicle along with bear mace and an air soft pistol.

A search warrant was then executed at residences in the 600 block of 7th Avenue North. Evidence seized from the search warrant include the following:

391 grams of fentanyl in bulk form, hidden inside a teddy bear, within a Canada Post package

10 grams of methamphetamine

25 additional grams of fentanyl packaged for street level trafficking

30 suspected ecstasy pills

Packaging material and a digital scale consistent with drug trafficking

Three BB hand guns

Ammunition

430 grams of cutting agent

A 2013 GMC Acadia was seized as offence related property.

The 25-year-old woman is facing charges of Trafficking in a Controlled Substance (Fentanyl), Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking x 2 (Fentanyl and Methamphetamine), Possession of Proceeds of Crime, Possession of a Weapon Dangerous to the Public Peace (x2) and Carrying a Concealed Weapon.

The total seizure of fentanyl in this investigation was 415.04 grams. The Saskatoon Police Service believes this is a significant seizure of fentanyl, as it prevents hundreds of single doses of fentanyl from entering our community. This single, one week, investigation protects our citizens from hundreds of potential overdoses as the use of fentanyl is highly dangerous.

The Crime Reduction Team is funded by the Government of Saskatchewan through the Ministry of Justice, Corrections and Policing.
