The little dope bust that grew; Raids seize $ 32 M in drugs
TRENTON -- What began with a tip to police about a small marijuana grow operation in rural Ontario quickly turned into a massive province- wide drug bust with 34 arrests and the seizure of a virtual buffet of street drugs worth $32 million.
OPP Det.-Supt. Frank Elbers said the operation, dubbed Project Vertigo, is far from over as he detailed the joint-forces sting.
"This project alone indicates the vastness of the drug trade in the province of Ontario," Elbers said. "We're still in the initial stages of this investigation."
Nine women and seven men were charged Wednesday after police raided 15 addresses inToronto and Markham, and two near Belleville.
