A joint forces investigation between Stettler RCMP and ALERT Red Deer has led to a significant methamphetamine seizure and charges against two suspected drug dealers.
In October 2021, as a result of local community concerns related to drug trafficking, RCMP began an investigation which led to RCMP executing a search warrant on a property in Stettler in which 300 grams of methamphetamine, along with a small amount of cocaine and $2,075 cash was located.
The estimated street value of the drugs is nearly $30,000.
On March 3, 2022, RCMP charged Warren Beatty (57) of Stettler with drug trafficking, possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking and possession of proceeds of crime.
Peggy-Sue Rebelkin (52) of Stettler was charged with possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking and possession of proceeds of crime.
“This amount of drugs had the potential to cause significant harm to a community like Stettler,” said Stettler RCMP Staff Sgt. Bruce Holliday. “Working with ALERT, we were able to address the issue in a timely manner and take these drugs off the street.”
Members of the public who suspect drug or gang activity in their community can call local police, or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
