3 people, 4 companies charged in illicit Calgary cannabis operation

Suspects may have fled the city and are facing criminal and regulatory charges

Calgary police and city inspectors have charged three people and four companies in relation to an illegal online cannabis operation in a southwest apartment where cannabis products were manufactured.

Police say they were called to a suite in the 1200 block of 17th Avenue S.W. on Aug. 24 for reports of a break and enter and found the illegal cannabis operation inside.

The residents were not home.

Later that day, police say, they obtained a warrant and seized about $163,000 worth of products, including dried cannabis, joints, edibles, oils and infused creams.

Denied licences
Police say that during the investigation, evidence was obtained that confirmed an illegal online cannabis business was being operated.

“Two individuals, who were originally denied licences by AGLC [Alberta Gaming Liquor and Cannabis commission) and the City of Calgary, were believed to have been operating the illicit online sales.”
