Durham Regional Police and RCMP seize $2 million in drugs, cash and cars

UPDATE: Police have made a correction to the information previously released. The total amount is $2 million not $6.5 as they previously stated.

DURHAM REGION-Durham Regional Police and the R.C.M.P. executed multiple search warrants early this week and seized approximately $875,000 in cash, cars and drugs as part of a GTA-wide drug investigation.

It was part of a larger initiative called Project Kamloops that began this spring and also involved Toronto Police and Peel Regional. The focus was on drug trafficking in Durham Region and the GTA. This past week, nine search warrants were executed at several residences and businesses in Durham Region, Toronto and Peel Region. All arrests occurred without incident with no injuries reported according to police.

Nine people have been arrested and are facing 60 charges. Police say the total value of cash, cars and drugs seized in Project Kamloops, including this week’s seizures, is just over $2 million dollars.
