When the arrest was taking place, one of the suspects attempted to flee and rammed a police vehicle before coming to a stop. No injuries were sustained, and the suspect was then arrested without further incident.

Ayanle Dahir, 31, and Ahmed Safadi,29, both from Edmonton, were jointly charged with possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking and possession of proceeds of a crime.

A firearms charge is allegedly pending against a third suspect.
