Police west of Edmonton have arrested and charged two people – for allegedly trafficking drugs to high school-aged youth in Spruce Grove.
The Spruce Grove/Stony Plain RCMP Drug Section has arrested and charged two suspects: Gleb Bugatti, 25, of Spruce Grove, and a female young offender.
The arrest came after investigators were given information on a drug dealer targeting high school students, by selling marijuana, psilocybin (magic mushrooms) and L.S.D.
Their investigation led to the arrest of Bugatti on September 27 and officers executed a search warrant on his home.
In the course of the search, police seized about five pounds of marijuana, a pound of mushrooms, 60 hits of acid and some marijuana plants – along with several thousand dollars in cash.
Bugatti is facing a number of drug-related charges, including trafficking a controlled substance, and production of a controlled substance – along with resisting arrest.
He has been scheduled to appear in court on October 3 in Stony Plain.
