RCMP bust sixteen in connection to Newfoundland drug trafficking operation 

Sixteen have been arrested for drug trafficking on Newfoundland’s west coast between August 27-31. The arrests are a result of a Newfoundland RCMP operation, Project Bullfight, conducted by Bay St. George and Channel-Port-aux Basques RCMP Detachments and supported by the RCMP Federal Serious and Organized Crime units from St. John’s and Gander and RCMP Police Dog Services. Those arrested vary in age, from as young as 18 to 59.

According to a news release, police were able to execute multiple search warrants in six communities across the province, including Lourdes, Three Rock Cove, Stephenville Crossing, Flat Bay, Port-aux-Basques and Searston. As a result, police seized over $62,000 worth of illicit drugs and substances, including cocaine, prescription pills, cannabis and cannabis resin, as well as over $90,000 cash as proceeds of crime, seven firearms and ammunition, as well as other evidence related to the illicit trafficking of drugs and cannabis.
