Edmonton, Alberta – One man is facing seven charges in connection to a firearms trafficking investigation.

Since April 2021, the EPS Firearms Investigation Unit (FIU), has been investigating a 34-year-old male suspected of firearms trafficking.

During the investigation, Cody Cohoe, 34, is alleged to have trafficked four restricted firearms.

FIU became aware of Cohoe when one of his five restricted firearms was recovered as part of a 2021 EPS Homicide investigation. The firearm was never reported lost or stolen by Cohoe.

FIU discovered that Cohoe reported a suspicious break and enter in Lloydminster in 2017, during which two of his restricted firearms were allegedly stolen. Throughout the course of the FIU investigation, Cohoe purchased one additional handgun.

On February 28, 2022, FIU, with the assistance of Fort Saskatchewan RCMP members, executed a search warrant at Cohoe’s residence in Fort Saskatchewan. FIU located several rounds of ammunition and seized two of Cohoe’s firearms, as they were improperly stored. Three of Cohoe’s restricted handguns were not accounted for and are still outstanding.

Cohoe is charged with firearms trafficking (x4), possession of firearm for the purpose of trafficking (x1), and careless use, storage, handling and transport of a firearm (x2).

Police are still looking for the outstanding handguns.

Anyone with any information about this or any other crime 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.p3tips.com/250.
