Drug Trafficking Investigation Leads to Charges for Osler Man


On Wednesday, December 9, 2020, officers from the Saskatchewan RCMP Federal Serious and Organized Crime Unit North (FSOC-N) were conducting an ongoing drug trafficking investigation in Osler, Saskatchewan. Information obtained by the Saskatchewan RCMP FSOC-N led to the execution of a search warrant at a residence located on the 200th block of Parkview Cove in Osler.

A search of the residence resulted in the seizure of the following drugs and items; 1448 grams of suspected methamphetamine, 476 grams of suspected cocaine, 278 grams of suspected fentanyl, $4,445 in Canadian currency, .32 caliber handgun and ammunition and Paraphernalia consistent with drug trafficking.

The quantity of fentanyl seized could be broken down into potentially over 1000 individual doses. Fentanyl is odorless and tasteless, and therefore hard to detect. A lethal dose of pure fentanyl is potentially less than two milligrams – that is equivalent to about two grains of salt.

As a result of this investigation, completed by FSOC-N with assistance from the Prince Albert Integrated Crime Reduction Team and Warman RCMP, 28-year-old Dustin Troy McDougall, from Osler, SK, has been charged with the following offences; Three counts of Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking contrary to Section 5(2) of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act; Possession of Proceeds of Crime Under $5000 contrary to Section 354(1) of the Criminal Code; Failure to Comply with Court Order contrary to Section 145 of the Criminal Code; and Three firearms related offences contrary to Sections 86(2) and 91(1) of the Criminal Code. Dustin McDougall is scheduled to appear in court on December 11, 2020, in Saskatoon.

“When we look at the impact of drug trafficking in our communities, we see the regular use of violence and property crime. These are just some of the many illegal activities that ruin lives every day. Preventing illicit drugs from spreading even further in our communities, plays a huge role in maintaining public safety,” says Staff Sergeant Jason Kerr, of the Saskatchewan FSOC-N. “The presence of illicit drugs and fatal overdoses are occurring in small towns and rural areas – this is not strictly a big city issue. Anyone can feel the impact of drugs when it reaches their community.”

The Saskatchewan RCMP Federal Serious and Organized Crime Unit works in conjunction with domestic and international partners to disrupt, dismantle and support the prosecution of serious and organized crime groups and their members.
