After investigating the trafficking of fentanyl for two months, the Calgary Police Service has shut down a Calgary-wide drug operation by seizing almost $200,000 worth of drugs and paraphernalia — mostly magic mushrooms.

The CPS received a tip in June about a man who was allegedly trafficking and manufacturing drugs to be sold in the Calgary area. Two men were arrested during a traffic stop on Friday, July 22. Their car contained various amounts of fentanyl, cocaine, and heroin, as well as a pill press used for fentanyl.

Officers also discovered a magic mushroom growing operation, a cocaine pill press and a pellet gun inside a home that was searched in the 6400 block of 4th Street NE.

The full list of what was seized:

  • 13.7 kilograms of magic mushrooms, worth $136,884
  • 65.5 grams powdered fentanyl, worth $43,688
  • 28.3 grams of heroin, worth $11,320
  • 39.5 grams of cocaine, worth $3,950
  • 656.1 grams of cutting agents for manufacturing
  • $415 in cash
