On March 28, 2016 Leduc RCMP officers responded to a tip from the public about the whereabouts of a wanted individual.

The suspect was located and taken into custody on outstanding warrants. During the arrest of the suspect, officers found him to be in possession of 55.3 grams of methamphetamine, 24.6 grams of hashish, 45 oxycodone tablets, over $1,000 in cash, as well as detailed plans on how to produce both methamphetamine and MDMA (ecstasy).

The investigation led to a search warrant being executed at a residence in the city of Leduc and an additional seizure of both methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

The total street value of the drugs seized is estimated to be in excess of $7,000.

33 year old Travis Hollar of Leduc has been charged with three counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, one count of possession of a controlled substance, obstruction of a police officer, and fraudulent personation with the intent to avoid arrest. He has been remanded in custody and will appear in Leduc court on March 31, 2016.

Leduc RCMP would like to thank the public for their cooperation in this investigation. The tip from a concerned citizen led to this substantial seizure and Leduc is a safer place today as a result.

Police are asking anyone who may have information concerning drug or other criminal activity to contact the Leduc RCMP at (780) 980-7200, or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477).
