Ten suspects were apprehended, four firearms were seized and more than $200,000 worth of narcotics were removed from the streets, following a major police operation in the West Island of Montreal.
All the individuals pinned appeared last Friday at the Montreal courthouse on various drug and firearms charges.
The police carried out several searches in the sectors of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, Sainte-Geneviève, Pierrefonds, Dollard-des-Ormeaux, as well as in downtown Montreal, as well as in Quebec City.
The objective of the operation was to dismantle a network of drug traffickers.
During the searches, the police seized cocaine, crack, speed, cannabis, hashish and magic mushrooms. The value of the confiscated drugs is over $200,000.
What’s more, the police also seized nearly $100,000 in cash.
The main suspects arrested in this strike are Vincent Roy, 25, Mohamed Ali Hraoui, 24, Alexandre Grigoras, 24, Bradley Provencher, 23, and Ajay Ambreya Singh, 24.
The five other people arrested, three women and two men, would have “played a secondary role within the network,” the SPVM said in a press release on Monday.
