On behalf of Nicholas St-Pierre avocat / lawyer posted in drug charges on Tuesday, July 18, 2017.

Provincial and local police worked together to sweep the streets of low-level drug dealers, according to news sources. The sweep, called Project Flurry by Ottawa police, focused predominantly on the Byward Market in Ottawa as well as the downtown core. Some 21 people were arrested in the sweep, all of whom now face drug charges. 

The specifics of how the sweep was conducted were not included in this report, which says roughly 80 charges were filed against those arrested. The arrested individuals ranged from age 16 through 55, and include two 17-year-old boys and a 16-year-old girl. It is unclear at this time whether all of these individuals are currently in police custody.
