The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL - THE HAMIL­TON SPEC­TA­TOR

Po­lice and border of­fi­cers say they’ve dis­rupted a crim­i­nal or­ga­ni­za­tion that was im­port­ing heroin des­tined for Hamil­ton.

A pack­age with 734 grams of sus­pected heroin was in­ter­cepted in London, Eng­land, on June 22. The heroin, val­ued at about $146,000, was com­ing from Kenya and headed to Hamil­ton.

Canada Border Ser­vices Agency and the RCMP were no­ti­fied and an en­su­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion led of­fi­cers to ex­e­cute search war­rants at two res­i­dences in Hamil­ton and Sim­coe.

The RCMP is search­ing for Okeke Obi, a 40-year-old Nige­rian cit­i­zen, wanted on a charge of im­port­ing a con­trolled sub­stance.
