Saskatchewan Police Bust Pot Trafficking Operation in Prince Albert, Saskatoon

PRINCE ALBERT, Sask. — Police say they have busted a marijuana trafficking operation in the Prince Albert area and Saskatoon.

RCMP say 21 kilograms of illegal pot and 4,244 packages of cannabis resin known as shatter were found after a search of storage lockers in both cities.

Investigators also seized crack cocaine, a restricted firearm and $4,700 in cash.

Mounties say two men who do not have a licence to sell legal cannabis have been arrested.

Aurel Pintea, who is 55, and Laszlo Ciupac, who is 51, face drug and weapons charges.

They are to appear in Saskatoon provincial court on Monday.
