Drug dealers who have Rimbey targeted as their next stop to make a deal might want to think again.

Rimbey RCMP made two significant drug busts last week, and have no plans to slack off in their relentless quest to put these dangerous individuals who are responsible for the illegal activity of dealing behind bars for a very long time.

While Sgt. Mark Groves of the Rimbey RCMP did not divulge much information as to the action preceding the drug busts one can be sure the local Mounties have inside information that leads them to be at the right place at the right time.

The first drug bust occurred when an officer pulled over a vehicle traveling to Rimbey on Highway 20 at around 10:30 p.m. last Friday.

Groves said the police seized a quantity of methamphetamine and cocaine from the vehicle. The 29-year-old driver from the Eckville area also had in his possession six-cell phones, a police scanner, prohibited weapons including brass knuckles, knives, bats and an imitation Glock handgun.

The police seized the vehicle and charged the driver accordingly.

The second drug bust occurred only a few days later.

Last Wednesday morning, RCMP stopped a car in Rimbey. Two men and a woman from Red Deer who are wanted on serious charges were apprehended. The police also found methamphetamine and marijuana in the vehicle.

Groves said the incidents of such drug busts are becoming higher, and he warns drug dealers to stay out of town.

“We are continuing to target individuals bringing meth in. Drug dealers need to stay away from Rimbey.”
