The operation targeted a suspected drug-trafficking ring that police say is directly linked to high-ranking members of the Hells Angels motorcycle club.
Investigators from the Sûreté du Québec’s anti-organized crime unit carried out 35 searches, police said. However, no arrests were made. Police say the drug-trafficking network is particularly active in the Bas-Saint-Laurent, Gaspé and Îles-de-la-Madeleine regions.
Ann Mathieu, a SQ spokesperson, said police searched 15 homes, two businesses and 18 vehicles.
In Quebec, searches took place in Longueuil, Brossard, Drummondville, Scott, Ste-Marguerite, Mascouche, Blainville and St-Jérôme.
In New Brunswick, RCMP officers took part in the operation in Edmundston and Ste-Anne-de-Madawaska.
