At a media conference in Thunder Bay, OPP Organized Crime Enforcement Bureau (OCEB) Commander — Chief Superintendent Mike ARMSTRONG — joined representatives of the Thunder Bay Police Service, Nishnawbe-Aski Police Service, Anishinabek Police Service, and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to reveal details of the investigation — dubbed Project HARRINGTON.

The six-month investigation targeted a network that transported and distributed large amounts of oxycodone and cocaine from southern Ontario to north-western Ontario, including First Nations communities.  Members of the Toronto Police Service who provided assistance throughout the investigation as well as members of the Peel Regional and Waterloo Regional Police Services who assisted with the search warrants were also acknowledged.

A total of nine (9) Controlled Drug and Substances Act (CDSA) search warrants were executed at locations in the Greater Toronto Area, Mississauga, Kitchener-Waterloo and Thunder Bay, including at the Thunder Bay District Jail. In all, police laid 95 charges against 11 persons, seven (7) of whom are in custody and four (4) others remain at large. Quantities of drugs worth approximately $1.13-million and cash were also seized.
