EDMONTON - The Alberta Law Enforcement Response Team has made what it says is the largest hashish seizure in Alberta.

The response team says 30 kilograms of hash was seized in Edmonton on Oct. 1.

It says the hashish was packaged and pressed in 30 one-kilogram bricks and found in a west-Edmonton storage locker.

Almost three kilograms of marijuana and $5,000 in cash were also seized.

The investigation was initiated after a Crime Stoppers tip from the public.

Craig Bendt Matthiessen, who is 49 and from Edmonton, faces several drug-related charges.
