Five-year sentence for Red Deer drug dealer

A Red Deer drug dealer has been sentenced to five years behind bars.

Allie Gader, 58, was arrested in 2015 in possession of more than 10,000 prescription pills including oxycodone, hydromorphone, morphine and triazolam. Police had opened an investigation after receiving tips about drug trafficking activity at Gader’s home in West Park.

Last October, he pleaded guilty to four counts of possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking and one count of possession of the proceeds of crime.

Sentencing was delayed because Gader filed a charter application claiming his rights were violated during a June 2016 incident at the Edmonton Remand Centre in which he was assaulted by officers. He also alleged the Crown had obtained improperly obtained medical records after he’d gone for rehab while in prison in November 2016.

Those arguments were struck down Thursday following a three-day hearing last week in Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench.

In addition to a five-year prison term, Gader was also banned from owning weapons for life.
