Three men and six women have been charged after raids in Brantford and Kitchener that took close to $200,000 in illicit drugs off the street.
Brantford police say a task force raided three addresses in Brantford on Pearl Street, Queensway Drive and Banbury Road. One address in Kitchener was also targeted at Westmount Road East.
In the haul, police say they confiscated large quantities of cash, fentanyl with a street value of about $196,000, a pump-action shotgun, ammunition, a hydraulic press and two cars — an Audi and a Porsche that may have been stolen.
Charges for the nine suspects include possession for the purpose of trafficking and possession of a prohibited weapon.
