RCMP from Beiseker de­tach­ment have charged two sus­pects fol­low­ing a com­plaint of drug traf­fick­ing in the com­mu­nity of Acme.

On June 14, af­ter re­ceiv­ing in­for­ma­tion from the pub­lic, Beiseker RCMP served a search war­rant on a rental prop­erty in Acme as part of drug traf­fick­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion. In­side the res­i­dence, of­fi­cers ar­rested one sus­pect with­out in­ci­dent. A sec­ond sus­pect was ar­rested at his work­place. A small mar­i­juana grow op­er­a­tion was also found in­side the res­i­dence and dis­man­tled. In to­tal, 9 mar­i­juana plants, 15 grams of dried mar­jhuana, and ap­prox­i­mately 40 grams of sus­pected co­caine were seized as well as a .22 cal­iber hand gun, bear spray, brass knuck­les, a ma­chete, a sword, and a large col­lec­tion of knives.

Tan­ner Mc­far­lane (25) and Michael Heon (20), both from Acme, have been charged with two counts of pos­ses­sion of a con­trolled sub­stance for the pur­pose of traf­fick­ing, pro­duc­tion of a con­trolled sub­stance, and unau­tho­rized pos­ses­sion of both pro­hib­ited and re­stricted weapons.

The two men have been re­leased on their own recogni- zance and are both sched­uled to ap­pear in Air­drie Provin­cial court on June 22, 2017.
