A central Alberta home has been shut down after a number of complaints were filed over drug-related activity in the residence.

The Safer Communities and Neighbourhoods (SCAN) Unit began investigating the home in the Inglewood East area after a number of public complaints were filed about suspected drug-related activity in the home.

SCAN investigators attempted to resolve the matter with the homeowner, but it’s believed the alleged activity continued.

Investigators obtained a Community Safety Order (CSO) on November 16 by the Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench.

The CSO went into effect at noon Tuesday, and will result in a 90-day closure – during that time, the owner must clear the house, and all property must be secured, including a fence around the perimeter of the property.

SCAN said any tenancy agreements or leases would be terminated as of Tuesday.

The CSO will remain until November 16, 2013, unless the owner sells the property.

SCAN said the property had been an ongoing problem for Red Deer City RCMP, who assisted in the investigation.
