EPS works with US Marshalls to extradite man with drug charges
The Edmonton Police Service assisted the US Marshalls to extradite an Edmonton man to the United States of America to face drug related charges.
Jaydon Richard Schreiber, 38, was escorted by the US Marshalls back to the USA on Friday, May 29, 2015 after the Federal Justice Minster approved his extradition.
Schreiber was originally arrested in California in 2012 during a traffic stop where it is alleged that he was in possession of almost 60kg of cocaine valued at $1.2 Million.
The charges from California are:
- transportation of cocaine in excess of 40 kilograms, in violation of California Health and Safety Code, sections 11352(a) and 11370.4 (a)(5) and in violation of Penal Code Section 1210(a).
- possession of cocaine in excess of 40 kilograms for sale, in violation of California Health and Safety Code, Sections 11351 and 11370.4(a)(5) and in violation of Penal Code, section 1203.73(b)(1).
- using a false compartment to smuggle drugs, in violation of California Health and Safety Code, section 11366.8(a).
The Edmonton Police Service arrested Schreiber after they received a request for assistance from the US Department of Justice.
