The joint investigation called “ Project Cobra”, persisted nearly three years and was concentrated on drug importation, drug trafficking and money laundering across U.S-Canadian border.
The operation reportedly captured 928 kilo of methamphetamine, 6 kilo of cocaine and 19 guns, says City News. The same report says “the officials searched 11 homes, businesses, storage locations and vehicles in Calgary, Bedford, Nova Scotia, Niagara-on-the-lake, Ontario, and Leduc County, Alta, in December 2021”.
Authorities also “either seized or froze approximately $7 million worth of property, bank accounts, luxury vehicles, cash and homes”. Fifteen people have reportedly been charged for “money laundering, drug trafficking and organized crime-related offences”.
Police officers from the investigated provinces helped in the investigations and residents have been urged to report any suspected act of drug trafficking or anything related to it.
