Edmonton police make $1.6 million drug bust

Edmonton police made a significant drug bust late last month.

On November 24, police stopped a Hyundai Santa Fe in the area of 109 Street and 88 Avenue. During the traffic stop, police ended up seizing seven kilograms of cocaine and $45,000 in cash. As a result of the traffic stop, two men were arrested.

Further investigation led to police conducting a search warrant at a residence near Jasper Avenue and 121 Street. At the residence, police seized 23 kilograms of MDMA and 165 grams of meth.

On top of this, police searched the Santa Fe again, where they discovered a hidden compartment that had 19 more kilograms of cocaine.

According to police, the total amount of drugs seized was just over 49 kilograms, with an estimated street value of $1.6 million.

“This was an example of some great proactive work done by our patrol officers,” said Staff Sergeant Jereme Anderson with EPS. “We are thankful that we were able to intercept this large number of illicit drugs before they hit the streets of Edmonton.”

Dulaj Jansz, 31, was charged with:

  • Possession for the purpose of trafficking 
  • Possession of proceeds of crime over $5,000.00 
  • Possession of identity documents (x2)
  • Possession of a weapon.

Stephen Poole, 39, was charged with:

  • Possession for the purpose of trafficking cocaine 
  • Possession of proceeds of crime over $5,000.00 
  • Possession of a weapon

Both Poole and Jansz have court set for January 10.
