Ontario Provincial Police officers across the province came together this Wednesday to share the shocking details of a 14-month probe into a drug-trafficking network. The network is reported to involve members of outlaw Ontario biker gangs. The OPP says that the gangs work together to move illegal drugs across the province.
The OPP’s organized crime enforcement bureau worked alongside police from Ottawa, Sudbury and Niagara to arrest fifteen people who are facing close to 200 charges. The team which operated under the codename ‘Project Skylark’ helped bring down the individuals who are accused of moving fentanyl, cocaine, and methamphetamine across the province.
