Fort Chipewyan resident charged with drug trafficking

“ A search of the residence resulted in the seizure of a quantity of cocaine and drug paraphernalia,” RCMP said in a statement.



A drug trafficking investigation in northern Alberta led RCMP to charge one man and seize “a quantity” of cocaine.

Police say they began a drug trafficking investigation in August that led them to conduct a search warrant at a home in Fort Chipewyan last week.

Lawrence Eli Tuccaro, of Fort Chipewyan, faces one count of possession for the purpose of trafficking cocaine and two counts of failing to comply with a release order.

Tuccaro was released on bail with conditions and is scheduled to appear in Fort Chipewyan provincial court in December.
