Police are calling it the most valuable drug seizure in Toronto, ever.
The results of “Project Polar” were made public this morning. The month long investigation seized drugs targeted for sale on the streets, with a combined value of just under $9 million.
“This seizure involves 73 kilograms of powdered cocaine, 12 kilograms of crystal meth amphetamine, and 8 kilograms of MDMA (commonly known as ecstacy). said Toronto police inspector Steve Watts. “These seizures were made in the city of Toronto, they were from a combined source of the residence and vehicle.”
The project confiscated the largest single seizure of powdered cocaine in Toronto.
32 year old Nicholas Shouldice, of Toronto, has been arrested and charged with two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking Cocaine, possession for the purpose of trafficking MDMA, and possession for the purpose of trafficking Crystal Meth.
“Project Polar” ended with the Toronto Drug Squad executing a search warrant in the McCowan Road and Ellesmere Road area. The street value of the drugs according to investigators is about $8.98 million.
