Vision (Canada) - - News - ALEXIA MARSILLO alexia.marsillo@eap.on.ca

On­ta­rio Pro­vin­cial Po­lice suc­cess­ful­ly rai­ded nine lo­ca­tions across Ot­ta­wa, Ga­ti­neau and Cla­rence-Ro­ck­land on Mon­day, No­vem­ber 6 as part of a six-month long ope­ra­tion en­tit­led “Pro­ject Land­slide.”

Four sus­pects were ar­res­ted, two of which are from Cla­rence-Ro­ck­land. The raids tar­ge­ted drug and wea­pons traf­fi­cking, all be­lie­ved to have ties to Ot­ta­wa street gang ope­ra­tions. Du­ring the six-month long in­ves­ti­ga­tion, OPP has sei­zed an AK-47, AR-15 rifle, and hand­guns, as well as thou­sands of me­tham­phe­ta­mine pills.

Du­ring the raids, the homes of the sus­pects were sear­ched, as well as sto­rage fa­ci­li­ties and a bu­si­ness.

Pro­ject Land­slide is a large mul­ti-ju­ris­dic­tio­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion, span­ning over six months, which has re­sul­ted in the sei­zure of high-po­we­red wea­pons and drugs. The OPP will be hol­ding a news confe­rence in Ot­ta­wa on Wed­nes­day, No­vem­ber 8 at 11 a.m., in or­der to re­lease fur­ther de­tails concer­ning the in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
