The RCMP in Cranbrook is alerting people about what they believe is a new method of disguising and trafficking drugs. While searching a local residence earlier this year, police located a bag of candy that seemed out of the ordinary and suspicious.
They decided to investigate further and sent the gummi bears to the drug lab for analysis. When they received the results, if confirmed their suspicion. The lab results showed the gummi bears were laced with the drug LSD, also known as Acid.
Corporal Chris Faulkner with the Cranbrook detachment says police do not want to create a panic, but want parents to be aware of these candy possibly being circulated in the Cranbrook area. "The concern from a safety point of view is if a child finds them," Faulkner explains.
