Members of the RCMP say they have charged two people in connection with the seizure of two kilograms of cocaine.

David Tieu, 23, and Christopher Pearson, 32, both of Calgary have been charged with drug possession for the purposes of trafficking following an investigation that concluded on November 28.

Officers found one kilogram of cocaine that had been split into ounces from a vehicle in the area of 33 Ave. and 19 St. S.W.

The subsequent investigation led them to an apartment in the 2600 block of 16 St. S.W.

A search warrant executed on that unit turned up another kilogram of cocaine along with numerous drug trafficking related items including packaging, a digital scale, and a hydraulic press.

RCMP also seized a 2007 Lincoln pick up truck.
