The Ontario Provincial Police say a 30-year-old Ottawa man faces several charges after officers executed three search warrants in the capital Friday, that turned up quantities of several alleged drugs, including more than 12 kilos of cocaine.
Officers also turned up more than 540 tablets of MDMA (also known as ecstasy or “Molly”), more than 5,000 tablets of suspected oxycodone, nearly 650 g of crystal methamphetamine and more than 1,000 methamphetamine tablets. Also seized were a suspected cutting agent, a cocaine press and American cash, the OPP’s organized crime enforcement bureau said in a release.
“The approximate street value of the drugs seized is $500,000,” police said.
The bureau launched an investigation last month after getting information about alleged drug trafficking activity in the Ottawa area.
A 30-year-old Ottawa man faces multiple charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking and one count of possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000, police said.
