After years of reported criminal activity, a Sherwood Park resident is in some hot water.
A property at 201 Marion Drive has been a source of drug trafficking, drug use and other criminal activity for several years. Police have responded to 112 calls to the home since 2008.
An investigation by the Safer Communities and Neighbourhoods (SCAN) unit ended in the local getting evicted from the property.
SCAN began its involvement in 2016 in response to complaints from the community.
In July of 2017, police stopped a vehicle leaving the property and seized heroin, methamphetamine and a sawed-off shotgun.
SCAN obtained a Community Safety Order (CSO) allowing authorities to close the property by boarding up the house and barring all occupants for 90 days.
In the time since SCAN obtained the CSO, the resident owner decided to sell their share of the property to two co-owners who live off-site. An amended court order bars the now-former owner from the property while granting access to the new owners to perform renovations. The property will remain under SCAN’s supervision until the CSO expires in October 2018.
The name of the resident was not released and no charges have been disclosed.
