A traffic stop on April 9 which led to a drug bust saw Spruce Grove / Stony Plain RCMP arrest two individuals, one of whom police say has gang connections.
Police seized three ounces of marijuana and 30 bags containing around 40 grams of cocaine in the vehicle.
Peter Goodsell, 29, and Amanda Lindstrom, 31, have both been charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking in relation to marijuana and cocaine, as well as possession of under $5,000 obtained by crime and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
Both have been released on $2,000 cash bail with conditions to not possess firearms or illegal drugs.
RCMP say Goodsell is a known member of the Kaos Krew Motorcycle Club. That club belongs to the Outlaw Motorcycle Gang, which has associations to the Hells Angels.
Cpl. Colette Zazulak said Outlaw Motorcycle Gang is an umbrella for criminal organizations and clarified that they have a relationship with the Hells Angels.
“We know there is a presence of (the) Outlaw Motorcycle Gang in this community and we are actively involved in investigating all criminal activity related to (them) because they certainly do jeopardize public safety,” Zazulak said.
Both Goodsell and Lindstrom appear in Stony Plain provincial court April 30.
