WINNIPEG — Nine people have been charged in what RCMP estimate to be the largest meth bust in Manitoba.
Federal RCMP executed nine search warrants on Wednesday — seven in Winnipeg, one in St. Laurent, Manitoba and another in Calgary.
Officers seized a large quantity of methamphetamine, cocaine, cash, and a number of motor vehicles tied to organized crime.
Police say they are still tallying the amount of drugs and cash seized, but note it is a substantial quantity.
Of the nine people charged, one man is a full-patch member of the Hells Angels.
All of the charged suspects are expected to appear in Winnipeg provincial court today.
Money laundering charges have also been laid, police say.
RCMP are expected to release further details and hold a news conference surrounding the investigation on December 10.
Early this morning, Federal RCMP officers & a number of specialized units, executed search warrants at locations across Winnipeg & the Interlake as part of an organized crime investigation. More details on the arrests, charges & seizures to be released when available. #rcmpmb pic.twitter.com/IHHW3zFPUa
