A man who is facing multiple drug trafficking charges, including charges being found with fentanyl to cause 7,500 lethal doses, has been denied bail.

Kabambi Khamba, a 31-year-old from Edmonton, had his bail denied on Monday in St. Albert Provincial Court.

Khamba is one of three men facing drug charges as a result of a two-month investigation by St. Albert RCMP and Edmonton Police Services. He is co-accused with Ali Foureh Waiss, a 34-year-old from Edmonton, and Subeer Hamud Jama, a 31-year-old from Edmonton. Neither of the co-accused have spoken to bail yet.

Khamba is facing charges of possession of heroin for the purpose of trafficking, possession of fentanyl for the purpose of trafficking, possession of proceeds of a crime over $5,000, possession of proceeds of a crime under $5,000, possession of heroin for the purpose of trafficking and possession of crack cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.

Khamba, Jama and Waiss will be back in court on March 12 to speak to their matters.

Jama has been charged with possession of heroin for the purpose of trafficking, possession of fentanyl for the purpose of trafficking, possession of proceeds of a crime over $5,000, trafficking fentanyl, possession of proceeds of a crime under $5,000 and obstructing a peace officer.

Waiss is facing five charges of possession of proceeds of a crime under $5,000 and four counts of trafficking heroin.

Duo puts drug trafficking charges over

A duo facing drug trafficking charges after a search warrant was conducted in Edmonton have had their matters put over.

Vincent Joannes Zyp and Anastasiya Bilovodska had their matters put over to March 5 for election and plea.

Zyp is facing 35 Criminal Code charges while Bilovodska is facing 27 charges after an extensive drug investigation by the local RCMP.

A search warrant conducted by the St. Albert RCMP netted a variety of drugs including cocaine, GHB, LSD, MDMA, Dexedrine capsules, Xanax tablets, psilocybin, cannabis marijuana and hashish.

The St. Albert RCMP also seized money, suspected to be from the proceeds of a crime; and a 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan.

Zyp, 27, is charged with three counts of trafficking a controlled substance, one count of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking and four counts of possession of proceeds of crime under $5000.

Along with the individual charges against Zyp, he is facing another 27 joint charges with 21-year-old Bilovodska. The two are facing an additional 15 counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, 11 counts of possession of a controlled substance and a single count of possession of proceeds of crime over $5,000.
