Nine kilos of cocaine seized in Newfoundland
NTV is reporting that "The RCMP arrested five men following the seizure of nine kilograms of cocaine, one of the larger cocaine seizures in the history of the province. The investigation, known as Project Bowman, determined that the cocaine entered the province hidden in freight being transported by a trucking company, which was unaware of the cocaine shipment."
One charge each of Trafficking in Cocaine, and Possession of Cocaine for the Purpose of Trafficking have been laid against all five of the following men, with an additional charge of Breach of Recognizance against Stephen Parsley: · Dimitrius Andreopoulos, 28 years old, of Toronto, Ontario · Herbert Lewis, 29 years old, of St. John’s, NL · Stephen Parsley, 32 years old, of St. John’s, NL · Wayne Parsley, 54 years old, of St. John’s, NL · William Richmond, 38 years old, of Grand Valley, Ontario. Note the Ontario connection.
December 2018 RCMP in Newfoundland seized 6 kilos of cocaine in Project Broken. They also seized thee guns and diamond dental grills. OMG those are absolutely ridiculous. White trash.
In the previous drug bust one of those charged was Michael Douglas Smith, 28 years old, of Drummondville Penitentiary in Quebec who was serving a sentence in relation to Operation Tailwind where 10 kilos of cocaine were seized. Michael Douglas Smith was also from Ontario.
