Grande Prairie police have seized two kilograms of cocaine and charged three men, two of whom are believed to be leaders of a drug-trafficking network known as the "Baseball Team."
The cocaine seizure took place at an acreage near La Glace, about 50 kilometres northwest of Grande Prairie, where police from the Alberta Law Enforcement Response Team also found firearms, a small marijuana grow-op and half a pound of marijuana.
In August, an ALERT spokesman said a one-kilogram brick of cocaine has a wholesale value of about $50,000, but can be sold as 3,000 half-gram "spitballs."
Police say the arrests are connected to a half-kilogram cocaine seizure and arrest last month of a Grande Prairie man affiliated with the Demon Soldiers motorcycle gang.
Grande Prairie residents Shaun Christopher Thexton, 40, and Bradley Joseph Demont, 25, as well as La Glace resident Clayton Kelly Buhler, 44, all face possession, trafficking and firearms charges.
