On April. 2, 2019, at approximately 9:30 p.m., Drumheller RCMP were called to an altercation between a post office worker and suspect trying to obtain a package of illegal drugs located in a mailbox. Multiple witnesses identified the suspect as Chad McCann.

Constable Jason Girard from the Drumheller RCMP responded to the call and explained more about the incident.

"Basically, during delivery, a package of illegal drugs was found in the mailbox. When one of the mail carriers noticed it, he immediately called the police. During that time, Mr McCann came out from across the street and tried reaching it to grab it. The mail man drove off, drag him for a little bit, he fell and then he just ran into his vehicle and left the residence before I got there."

A warrant has been issued for his arrest on four counts of possession for purpose of trafficking with more charges pending. Drumheller RCMP seized a package of drugs containing Methamphetamine, Cocaine and Fentanyl. McCann was on court conditions to not possess intoxicating substances from a previous charge at the time of this incident.

McCann was also arrested on January 31, 2019. He was charged with one count of trafficking an opioid and one count of trafficking methamphetamine.

"Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the incident to contact the Drumheller RCMP or your local police detachment. If you want to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers," urged Girard.
