Halton Police seized the $4 million worth of drugs, which include cocaine and a record amount of fentanyl.

This comes after investigators of the Halton Regional Police Service dedicated themselves to pursuing two people who were suspected of trafficking drugs in Oakville.

The investigation was dubbed “Project Mover” and ended up finding evidence in many jurisdictions across the GTA. Since June, Police have arrested nine people in connection to this.

Halton Police say they seized 10 kilograms of fentanyl, one kilogram of cocaine, MDMA, and six kilograms of an unknown drug they have yet to identify.

Two firearms and two vehicles were also seized by police. The weapons were a semi-automatic shotgun and 40 calibre handgun with an extended magazine. The vehicles were a 2019 Dodge Durango and a 2016 Acura RDX.

Deputy HRPS Chief Jeff Hill said that the 10 kilograms of fentanyl seized was enough to kill five million people. Adding "As little as 2mg of fentanyl can kill a person,"

Charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking, possession of property obtained by crime, and firearms offences have been laid against the individuals.

All the individuals except one were released with the promise to appear in court.
