Last Thursday (October 15th), during the execution of “Project New Haven”, police arrested 16 people and laid 138 charges to residents on both sides of the Ottawa River. Officers executed a dozen search warrants in Ottawa, Gatineau and in Luskville.

Police seized 11.59 kg of cocaine, 221 lbs of cannabis, 40,000 amphetamine tablets, $227,105 in cash, five vehicles, a cocaine press, cutting agent, commercial packaging materials, and several guns (two long guns, three handguns, a replica firearm, and an electric pulse pistol).

According to police, these high-level targets included individuals associated with crime rings in Ontario, including outlaw motorcycle gangs based in Ottawa and Quebec, who are responsible for supplying drugs to mid-level traffickers and street gangs.

Six of the accused are being held in custody and the others were released with conditions as well as upcoming court dates.
