A dozen of raids were conducted in the Greater Montreal area by a number of police forces Thursday morning.
The Surete Quebec in tandem with local police forces in Longueuil, Laval and Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu underwent a large-scale operation dismantling a suspected drug trafficking network.

According to spokesperson Jean-Pierre Voutsinos for the Longueuil police, these sweeping searches aim to disrupt a well-established distribution network.
Project Mackerel was first initiated by investigators from the Longueuil police department (SPAL) last April, following information received from the public concerning the presence of a distribution network of narcotics on the South Shore of Montreal.

Around 150 SPAL police officers assisted the operation which stretches from Longueuil as well as in Laval, Vaudreuil-Dorion and Varennes.
So far no arrests have been made in connection with the searches.
Voutsinos says a full detailed report of the sized items is expected to be announced at a later date.
“We think we will be seizing interesting quantities of narcotics and weapons,” Voutsinos said.
