Huge Kelowna Drug bust

Castanet is reporting that "The Kelowna RCMP has announced charges against five people with ties to the Red Scorpion gang after a months-long investigation. The charges date back to November 2017 after police initiated a drug investigation targeting the Red Scorpion gang, and the alleged distribution and sale of drugs throughout the Kelowna area."

"The investigation dubbed, "Project E-Precedent" involved 15 search warrants executed on private residences and one office building. The searches led to the seizure of approximately 5.5 kilograms of fentanyl and carfentanil, 3 kilograms of methamphetamine, 1.5 kilograms of cocaine as well as GHB, ecstasy, and other pharmaceutical drugs."

"RCMP also seized firearms including a mac-10 sub-machine gun, two semi-automatic 9mm handguns, .45 caliber handgun, .38 caliber handgun, as well as numerous other semi-automatic rifles and long guns and over $130,000 in Canadian money."

OK that is significant. Can we hire the Kelowna RCMP to work in Surrey? The RCMP in the Maritimes make drug busts as well. If the RCMP in Surrey did this, we wouldn't need to replace them. The Red Scorpions work for the Hells Angels but I'm not sure that this bust did involve them. No colours were seized.
