Calgary police have charged three people after discovering cocaine, cash and several expensive watches following two separate investigations.

One person was charged with drug trafficking after an investigation in May in which police stopped a woman seen driving around the city carrying out suspicious activity, said police in a news release.

Police seized from the vehicle 956 grams of powder cocaine, saying it had an approximate value of $95,600, and 156.3 grams of crack cocaine with an estimated value of $15,630. Three Rolex watches worth $30,000 and $625 were also found in the vehicle.

Hanh Tuyet Truong, 48, of Calgary has been charged with one count of drug trafficking, one count of possession of the proceeds of crime and two counts of drug possession for the purposes of trafficking. She is to appear in court June 28.

The second investigation resulted in drug trafficking charges for a man and a woman after police stopped a vehicle in the 2600 block of 68 Street N.E. Police found $21,000 and a small amount of cocaine.

Following the arrests, police also searched two homes in the 100 block of Falton Rise N.E. and the 900 block of Rundlecairn Way N.E., where 56.9 grams of crack cocaine, plus processing and packing equipment was seized.

Yoas Abraham Gezaw, 33, and Sarah Kebede Degu, 43, both of Calgary, have each been charged with several drug-trafficking and possession charges.

Gezaw is set to appear in court June 23. Degu has a scheduled court appearance for July 5.
