Arrest of fentanyl traffickers

In November, the Organized Crime Division of the SPVM, in collaboration with several other units, dismantled a narcotics trafficking ring suspected of selling narcotics mixed with fentanyl. The arrested suspects mainly operated in the Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie, Le Plateau-Mont-Royal and Ville-Marie boroughs.

The investigation led to four searches and the arrest of five suspects. The searches resulted in the confiscation of an imposing list of illegal substances and several weapons, including a revolver and ammunition.

This investigation was launched further to information provided by a citizen to Info-Crime Montréal. We highlight that the public’s help is essential to ensure safety. It enables police officers to gather crucial information that allows investigations to make progress.
