A drug investigation started by Winnipeg police has resulted in the seizure of $10 million in drugs by Calgary police.

Police in Winnipeg began the investigation in October 2019 called Project Sasquatch, which found an interprovincial drug courier was operating by transporting multiple kilograms of meth, cocaine, fentanyl and heroin from eastern Ontario across the prairies to Alberta.

Calgary police located the suspect’s pickup on January 30 near Dorothy, Alberta, which led to the seizure of:

  • 46.9 kg of cocaine with an estimated street value of $4.69 million
  • 47.5 kg of crystal methamphetamine with an estimated street value of approximately $4.75 million

Jacob Cody Neumann of Calgary, 33, was charged with two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking.

“The Winnipeg Police Service congratulates the Calgary Police Service Gang Enforcement Team on achieving such an exceptional result that will no doubt have a significant impact on disrupting the flow of illicit drugs into our local community and those across western Canada,” police said in a release.
