Massive Fentanyl Lab busted in Edmonton

On July 5, the Edmonton Drug and Gang Enforcement (EDGE) Unit executed a search warrant at an Edmonton home, seizing 67,000 fentanyl pills, valued at about $2 million. Other seizures included 2.4 kg of cocaine, 1.8 kg of methamphetamine, and a total of 130,000 fentanyl pills with an estimated street value of $3.9 million, 4 ounces of carfentanil, 658 grams of fentanyl-laced powder and about 100 kilograms of buffing agents.
Police also seized more than $1 million in Canadian cash, four large cement mixers, two pill presses, and a 2001 Ford F-150 with a hidden compartment. 

The Sturgeon County home has since been deemed ‘unfit for human habitation’ by Alberta Health Services. Police say it’s the largest seizure of fentanyl in Canadian history.
