TORONTO – Police say they’ve disrupted several networks allegedly involved in trafficking fentanyl and other drugs.
Police say co-ordinated efforts led to the arrests last week of eight people from the Greater Toronto Area.
They say officers seized fentanyl, methamphetamine, cocaine, marijuana, counterfeit U.S. currency, 12 handguns and a hand grenade.
Investigators say seven of the accused range in age from 26 to 43 and come from the Ontario communities of Toronto, Mississauga. Brampton, Pickering and Bowmanville. They face numerous drug-related counts.
A 37-year-old Markham, Ont., man is charged with criminal negligence causing bodily harm.
