Sylvan Lake RCMP are continuing in their commitment to reduce drug related offences with two more people charged with drug trafficking in the past month.

Following a traffic stop for a burned out headlight, about 12:10 a.m. Apr. 14, a Red Deer resident was arrested for breach of probation. A search of the driver and vehicle produced 13 grams of crack cocaine, two grams of methamphetamine, $420 in cash, three cell phones and two digital scales, reported RCMP Cst. Gord Marshall.

Leith Alexandra Curtis was charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking.

Marshall noted the matter is still under investigation and may result in additional charges and/or arrests of associated individuals.

Five days later, at approximately 9:30 p.m. Sylvan Lake RCMP members were conducting licensed premises checks.

Investigators observed a man who was currently on conditions not to consume alcohol. He was arrested for breaching his conditions and searched incidental to arrest, reported Marshall. The search produced nine grams of cocaine, nine prescription morphine based pills and $820 in cash.

Dayne Ryley Stumpf, of Sylvan Lake, has been charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking.

Marshall said this investigation is also ongoing and additional charges may follow.
