Police Stops Ecstasy Trafficking Ring
Windsor and Toronto area residents were charged for trafficking in ecstasy and marihuana.
On Wednesday October 11, members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Drug Section executed search warrants on two residences in Windsor and arrested ten persons.
During the investigations police identified an alleged conspiracy between
Windsor residents and Toronto area residents to traffic in Cannabis Marihuana. Among the charged are Mazin ODISH, Jimis ODISH, Steven ODISH, Adil ODISH, Suad ODISH, Ahmad HABHAB, Kemel HAZIME, Jason KIM, Maher AMROU, Ahmad AMROU, Ibrahim ALAWIEH, Rabih OSMAN and many more.
Law enforcement officials intercepted approximately 55,000 Ecstasy
tablets during the course of the investigation. Analysis of the tablets seized revealed that the Ecstasy tablets contained both Ecstasy and Methamphetamine.
The investigation identified a criminal organization that was allegedly
distributing Ecstasy tablets from the Greater Toronto Area to Windsor. Once the tablets were in Windsor, couriers would export the tablets across the border into the U.S. Personal vehicles and concealment methods were used.
One Windsor man and one Toronto man arrested as a result of the
investigation were also charged with conspiracy to traffic in firearms.
The search warrants were a result of a six month joint investigation
conducted by the RCMP and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in
Michigan. Canada Border Services Agency and the Sterling Heights Police
Department also assisted in the investigation.
