Welp, the gangs down in the Lower Mainland are more than $8 million poorer.
The Vancouver Police Department’s (VPD) Organize Crime Section
decided to use their operation, Project Tint, to check out whether the gangs’ drug business was bringing in large hauls of drugs and money.
Back in May, the VPD’s Organize Crime Section
investigated the gangs’ and found out that YES they were bringing in large hauls of drugs that brought them large hauls of money.
Fentanyl, cocaine, and methamphetamine are drugs that makes money rain. The law, though, doesn’t like any drug business that doesn’t have a license from the government to sell drugs. Therefore, the law decided it would be the sun drying up all that rain.
Knock, knock! It’s not the mailman but the policeman! The police
knocked, knocked, knocked on three houses; two in New Westminster and one in Port Moody. Armed with search warrants, flashlights, and guns the police entered the home and found a total of 73 kilos of drugs
that included 10 kilos of fentanyl, 22 kilos of cocaine, and 41 kilos of methamphetamine.
also spotted $172,000 of cash lying around, as well as two cars outside and a kilo press inside. Happy Day! Happy Day! But not for the gangsters
because two of their colleagues, who are more than certain to tell everything, were arrested.
The VPD’s Organize Crime Section
worked with the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of British Columbia (CFSEU-BC) and the Lower Mainland Integrated Emergency Response Team in order to disrupt the gangs’ lucrative drug business.
Here’s what the VPD quoted Inspector Phil Heard
, who’s over in the Organize Crime Section, as saying, “This is one of the larger drug seizures we have seen in recent years. We believe this investigation, and he substantial seizure of drugs and cash, will have a significant impact on organized crime in the Lower Mainland…A seizure of this size will undoubtedly reduce the amount of fentanyl and other illicit drugs sold on the streets.”
The gangsters aren’t happy because the police have taken their yacht money and now they have to find a way to get it back so they can get their yacht. And the only way to get back the $8 million plus that the police have locked up at the police station in the evidence room is to sell more drugs that the police will surely take off the streets and lock up in the evidence room next to all of that money.
It’s an endless cycle that doesn’t benefit the gangsters.
