A 22-year-old Calgary man faces drug trafficking charges after Lethbridge police made the largest fentanyl bust in the city's history.
Officers seized a total of 553.2 grams of fentanyl, worth an estimated $337,000, on Wednesday during the searches of a home in the 1900 block of 12 Avenue S and the suspect's vehicle.
In addition to the fentanyl, the searches yielded:
- 3,597.5 grams of methamphetamine;
- 192.5 grams of cocaine; and,
- $14,085 in cash.
Danny Truong has been charged with three counts of possession of trafficking a controlled substance and one count of possession of the proceeds of crime over $5,000.
The accused remains in custody ahead of his release hearing.
Wednesday's investigation eclipsed the previous record seizure of 478 grams of fentanyl that was recorded only eight days earlier.
