Two Airdrie residents have been arrested for drug offences following an investigation by Airdrie RCMP's Crime Reduction Unit (CRU).
According to a press release from the detachment, officers began their investigation due to numerous tips from the public that a male was selling illicit drugs in the city. On Jan. 12 at approximately 4:30 p.m., officers arrested a male and female at a residence in Windsong after witnessing them conduct drug activities.
As a result of the subsequent search of the residence, police seized 1.56 pounds of marijuana, 181 grams of psilocybin (magic mushrooms), 29.7 grams of MDMA, 100 hits of LSD, 224 packs of unstamped cigarettes and a set of brass knuckles.
The release states Airdrie resident Timothy Adam Campbell, 29, has been charged with trafficking a controlled substance, two counts of possessing a controlled substance, possessing unstamped cigarettes and possessing cannabis for the purpose of selling it.
A female was also arrested and charged with numerous drug offences, according to the release, and will be appearing in Airdrie Provincial Court on Feb. 25 at 9 a.m. She cannot be named, however, as the information has not yet been sworn by the courts.
