Neighbours complained of needles around the neighbourhood, fights spilling out into the street and constant traffic to and from the property.

According to the province of Alberta, RCMP evidence said police responded to nearly 100 incidents since the beginning of 2020.

“Law-abiding Albertans shouldn’t be afraid to walk on their street or enjoy a day in the park because of drugs or gang activity,” Justice Minister and Solicitor General Kaycee Madu said in a news release.
