Two people arrested, 90 kg of cocaine seized in undercover bust: Calgary police

Apr. 6, 2023, Calgary, Alta. – Calgary police have seized more than 90 kilograms of cocaine and arrested two men after a four-month investigation into an alleged drug trafficker.

Investigators received information in October about a person believed to be involved in a cross-Canada drug trafficking operation.

Police say the organized crime operations unit also received help from police in Edmonton, Vancouver and the United States Drug Enforcement Administration.

They say two vehicles travelling to Calgary from Vancouver were stopped in February and found to have the cocaine inside hidden compartments.


Steven Christopher Fera, who is 45, of Calgary, and Jason Jamie Chan, who is 38, of Surrey, B.C., are charged with two counts each of possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.

They are scheduled to appear in court April 14.

“We believe these drugs were destined for communities across Canada, and would’ve contributed to many of the issues impacting citizens today, including social disorder, addictions, overdoses and drug-related violence,” said Staff Sgt. Mark Rahn of Calgary police’s Organized Crime Operations Unit.

“A seizure of this size significantly disrupts the operations of organized crime groups across Canada and serves as a warning to anyone involved in organized crime that we are targeting them.”
