Maskwacis and Wetaskiwin RCMP seize drugs, stolen property during search warrant

The search of the residence resulted in police locating cocaine, methamphetamine and fentanyl.

On June 18, 2020 the Maskwacis RCMP Community Response Unit – General Investigative Section (CRU-GIS) teamed up with the Wetaskiwin RCMP to execute a search warrant on a residence and vehicle in Wetaskiwin.

Maskwacis CRU-GIS were investigating drug trafficking in the Maskwacis area when a Wetaskiwin residence was identified as a location of interest. The search of the residence resulted in police locating cocaine, methamphetamine and fentanyl.

A stolen vehicle was recovered from the property. Another associated vehicle was located on June 19. This vehicle was searched under the warrant and over $6000 cash, oleoresin capsicum (OC) spray, methamphetamine and various controlled prescription pills were seized.

25-year-old Domanick Fraynn has been charged with nine counts including Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking, Possession of a Controlled Substance, and Possession of Property Obtained by Crime. Fraynn was remanded for court on June 23 in Wetaskwin.

25-year-old Alyssa Soosay was charged with eight counts, including Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking and Possession of a Prohibited Weapon. Soosay was released on bail for court on August 4 in Wetaskiwin.

“We are happy to work with our neighbouring detachments,” said Cpl. Rob Simmonds of Maskwacis CRU-GIS, “Taking drug dealers off the streets has a positive impact on both of our communities and supports both of our strategies to reduce crime.”
