While many drug-related investigations are small in scale and focus on a few individuals, sometimes headlines are made by larger stories. The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have recently revealed information about what they say is the largest drug seizure in the history of the OPP. The seizure involved approximately 1,000 kilograms of pure cocaine with a street value of $250 million. Three Canadian men have been arrested on drug charges in relation to this search and seizure.
The cocaine seizure occurred in Orilla, Ontario. The OPP say the cocaine came from Argentina to the Port of Montreal to its final distribution point in Ontario. The three men currently facing drug charges are from the Greater Toronto area, although the OPP say that international elements and Mexican cartels may be involved as well.
