A StorageMart self-storage facility in Saskatoon, Alberta, Canada, recently cooperated with local law enforcement to bring about the arrest of four people in what was a five-month long investigation targeting drug trafficking.
Members of the Saskatoon Integrated Drug Unit and Emergency Response team presented a warrant last week to search a unit at the facility, and police found illegal substances. Police reported the crime is not connected to a large organized-crime syndicate but rather a small group of local suspects. They also reported there is no reason to fear for public safety.
StorageMart representatives said in a news release that because of the large number of StorageMart stores, drug and other criminal activity will occasionally occur. However, company representatives emphasized they are always cooperative with law-enforcement investigations, often volunteering their facilities for training of K-9 units.
StorageMart is a self-storage company with more than 140 locations across the United States and Canada.
