Police seize guns, drugs and cash in predawn raids targeting drug trade

MONTREAL — Eight people have been taken into custody following a series of predawn raids targeting Montreal organized crime and the drug trade.

A Montreal police spokesman said officers also seized more than $100,000 cash, two firearms and an undetermined amount of drugs including cocaine, crystal meth and amphetamines.

Const. Andre Leclerc said the people stopped by police include five men between 26 and 48 years of age and three women between 36 and 50.

Leclerc said some of them are tied to street gangs and organized crime.

The police operation targeted ten locations in Montreal and the nearby suburb of Longueuil.
