‘Shocking’ – Calgary Police detail substantial seizure of cocaine and meth

Calgary Police have arrested two suspects after seizing what investigators are calling a shocking amount of illegal drugs.

Police say they pulled over a minivan on Oct. 4 and found 66 kilograms of cocaine and 30 kilograms of methamphetamine along with approximately $41,000 in cash.

“To my knowledge this is one of the largest drug seizures in CPS history and certainly a substantial drug seizure for the province of Alberta,” Insp. Keith Cain said Thursday.

Cain said police believe the drug haul is somehow linked to organized crime but aren’t sure if they were for sale in Calgary or elsewhere.

Navjot Singh, 23, has been charged with two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking.

Gurjeet Ghotra, 20, faces two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking.

Cain said additional charges are pending relating to the seizure of a Taser at a home during the investigation.
