From the Canadian Press:
RCMP seize 20 tonnes of hashish off the coast of Africa
An elaborate sting operation off the coast of Africa has prevented 20 tonnes of hashish from entering Canada, the RCMP said Monday.
. . . Operation Chabanel was carried out in co-operation with the Defence Department and officers in England, Morocco, Pakistan, the United Arab Emirates and Spain.
Drugs from a boat were transferred to a Mountie-chartered deep-water vessel some 330 kilometres off the coast of Angola in southern Africa on May 10.
HMCS Fredericton then escorted the ship to Montreal.
Peter Toman, 59, his 24-year-old son Andrew, and Sidney Lalloux, 57, were arrested June 2 when the drugs were supposed to be delivered to the Montreal West End Gang. . .
Talk about having a great week. Fantastic work!
