The individuals have been charged in connection with drug trafficking offences alleged to have occurred between November 2016 and November 2019.
Two of the individuals were previously charged with weapons offences on Feb. 14, 2020. Those charges stemmed from search warrants carried out on Nov. 14, 2019.
All four individuals have been released by justice of the peace undertaking, and will make their first court appearances in Estevan Provincial Court on June 29, 2020.
The investigation began in January 2019, mainly carried out by a unit known then as the Regina Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit. The unit was formed in partnership with Estevan police, Estevan RCMP, Regina Police Service, Saskatoon Police Service and the National Weapons Enforcement Support Team. The unit’s mandate and name were changed this January.
