Calgary man gets four years for single dial-a-dope fentanyl sale

A single sale of 10 fentanyl pills to an undercover cop has landed Calgary man Matthew Watson a four-year prison sentence. The judge said he could have been facing an even stiffer punishment and agreed that the normal sentencing range for fentanyl trafficking is five to eight years.

Police also charged Bradley Darrel Moncrieff, 32, and Jamie Walsh, 35 with numerous counts of trafficking a controlled substance, possessing a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, and possessing proceeds of crime.
