Files 2021-18704, 2021-18705
Four people are facing charges following an investigation by members of the Integrated Crime Reduction Team (ICRT) and Street Enforcement Team (SET), which resulted in the seizure of methamphetamine, morphine, fentanyl, drug packaging materials, and several weapons in two separate files.
On Friday, May 28, officers charged Brandon Couillonneur and Jefferson Jobb after locating 42 grams of methamphetamine, morphine pills, and a taser. Couillonneur, age 26, is charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking in relation to this file. [Information 991162237]. Jobb, age 30, is charged with numerous weapons offences, possession of a controlled substance, and breach of court order. [Information 991162238]
Evidence obtained in file 2021-18704 then led police to execute a search warrant at a home in the 600 Block of 6th Street East, where they located a small amount of methamphetamine, seven grams of Fentanyl, over $6,000 in cash, a collapsible baton, and drug packaging materials. Chelsea Nicole Dagenais, age 32, and Devon Craig LeBlanc, age 41, are both charged with possession of Fentanyl for the purpose of trafficking.
Dagenais is also charged with breach of probation, while LeBlanc is further charged with possession of proceeds of crime, possession of methamphetamine, possession of a dangerous weapon and failure to comply with court orders. [Information 991162241]
Police would like to warn the public that Fentanyl is so powerful that even a small amount can cause severe illness or death. Just a few grains of this substance can be fatal.
Purchasing drugs from a street dealer carries a higher risk of injury or death, as the user cannot be sure of the quality of the product, or whether any toxic substances have been added. Drugs or medications should only be taken as prescribed by a medical practitioner. The police service is advising the public not to consume illegal street drugs.
Anyone witnessing an overdose should call 911 immediately and remain at the scene. The risk of overdose is extremely high.
Under the Good Samaritan Overdose Act, anyone can report an overdose without being charged with a crime for having or using drugs. Additionally, take-home Naloxone kits can be obtained from several locations around Prince Albert.
