Police seized one kilogram of meth, 444 grams of fentanyl, 500 Xanax pills, 400 tabs of LSD, more than three liters of GHB, $16,000, and several weapons.

As the RCMP executed the search warrant, shots were fired at the police and one officer was injured.

Miller, another man and a woman were arrested.

Miller was released, but did not show up for his scheduled court date.

The 42-year-old man was arrested in Edmonton earlier this month after a two-year manhunt.

An RCMP crew in Edmonton stopped a suspicious vehicle on November 3 and observed Miller in the back seat.

According to RCMP, officers found a suitcase and duffle bag with drug preparation equipment and approximately 10 kilograms of suspected fentanyl.

Along with his prison sentence, Miller is subject to a lifetime firearms ban.
