More than a thousand kg of illicit substance was recovered, including 444 kg of cocaine, 182 kg pounds of crystal meth, 427 kg of marijuana and 300 tablets of oxycodone.
The greatest "drug takedown" in Toronto Police Department history occurred when officers disrupted a network that spanned three countries, resulting in the seizure of about 61 million Canadian dollars ($49.49 million) in narcotics.
The operation resulted in the arrest of 20 persons; approximately half of them were of Indian descent.
After beginning investigations in November of last year, Project Brisa (Spanish for breeze) lasted over six months. Over “1,000 kg of illicit narcotics were recovered, including 444 kg of cocaine, 182 kg of crystal meth, 427 kg of marijuana, and 300 tablets of oxycodone. In addition, police confiscated 21 vehicles, including five tractor-trailers, $966,020 in cash, and a weapon”.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Ontario Provincial Police, York Regional Police, Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), Windsor Police Service, Montreal Police, and the Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada were among the law enforcement agencies involved in the operation, while Canadian police worked with the US Department of Homeland Security and the Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada. Drugs were being transported between Mexico, the United States, and Canada in the tractor-trailers.
“The removal of this quantity of drugs destined for the streets of our respective communities has without question prevented countless overdoses, acts of drug-related violence like shootings, and other occurrences that diminish the quality of life for our citizens,” Toronto Police chief James Ramer said.
“When such networks are operating across three countries, Canada, the US and Mexico, ongoing collaboration between agencies, including CBSA is vital,” York Regional Police chief Jim MacSween said.
