Two people were arrested on Cranbrook Street North on Tuesday, June 17, for Trafficking in a Controlled Substance. Initially, a 25-year-old male from Edmonton was arrested and a substance purported to be cocaine was seized.

A few minutes later a 22-year-old female from Cranbrook believed to be working with the male subject was arrested and two grams of white powder suspected to be cocaine was turned over to police.

Both subjects were charged with Trafficking and appeared in Cranbrook Provincial Court on June 18. In order to be released they must post a $2,500 bail which they have yet to do.

This past week three people have been sentenced for drug offences in Cranbrook.

Clinton Gravelle was convicted of Possession of a Controlled Substance stemming from an arrest on July 11, 2013. He received 15 days in jail.

James Muraro was arrested for Trafficking on June 4, 2014, at which time police located seven packages of cocaine on his person. On June 16, he pleaded guilty to the charge and was sentenced to 18 months jail.
