The bust was put into motion on Wednesday, when police initiated a traffic stop near the city, according to a police press release.

As a result of the traffic stop and arrest of three individuals without incident, police applied for and received a Controlled Substances Act search warrant on a residence in the 600 block of Seventh Street East in Prince Albert.

During their investigation, police seized more than 450 grams of cocaine, an undisclosed “large amount” of Canadian currency and a 2010 Ford F-150.

This large-scale effort came as a result of a handful of police-based organizations coming together. These organizations included the Prince Albert Integrated Street Enforcement Team, the Prince Albert Combine Forces Special Enforcement Unit and the Prince Albert Police Service Patrol Division.

Evan Nguyen, 23, of Surrey, B.C., has been charged with possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, possession of proceeds of ac rime over $5,000 and breaching his conditional sentence order. Nguyen has been remanded in custody and will be making his next court appearance on Monday, April 21, in Prince Albert Provincial Court.

    Scary that big city drug gangs established in PA. Time to demand that Brad Wall admit Saskatchewan has a serious crime problem, with more crime than any other province and that when it is province wide, this is his responsibility, as premiere. Time to increase enforcement and stop bragging about useless things like a $100,000,000 art gallery for Saskatoon. We need more nurses on the ward, more cops on the street and more teachers for our kids. Less white elephant projects, let's make Saskatchewan a safe and healthy place to live instead!
