Police have arrested an Edmonton man who was selling drugs online.

Police say the 33-year-old was using  Craigslist to find buyers and manage transactions.

On July 9, officers from an Alberta Law Enforcement Response Team (ALERT) visited the man’s home in southeast Edmonton.

When they searched the residence, they say they found $16,000 worth of hashish, marijuana, MDMA, cocaine and prescription pills.

He is now facing 17 drug-related charges, and has been released on bail. He will be back in court on July 25.

This is the first time ALERT has conducted an investigation based upon online drug sales.
